“As a first-generation and low-income student myself, I'm ecstatic to begin laying out the framework for our organization to provide a platform for disadvantaged students to elevate themselves in the college application process to provide more equal opportunities. This project has many positive implications for the FGLI community and I can't wait to take it to the next level.”
