I re-discovered a letter I wrote at 22 years old about what it's like to be a first-generation college student struggling financially through college. The letter wasn't planned; it was merely a response to my college's suggestion that I share my experience. It breaks me to read these words and remember what it was like, knowing that right now, students are still struggling through school, and some will not make it to their dreams. I'm publishing this one for anyone who has felt the weight of paying for college, bit by bit, fearing the moment when scraping by no longer worked, when all the cards had been played, and it all comes crashing down. Maybe through sharing these stories, we can try to fix at least the anxiety and isolation that comes with feeling like someone who doesn't belong, who can't make it. I'm here to share to say that it was tough, and I did it. We can all do it, if we pull together.
