"At first, I had no clue I could be considered a first generation student. Although neither of my parents completed college, my older sister was the first to graduate from our family so I thought that she would be the only first generation college student in our family. Little did I know, my brother and I are first generation college students, too! All three of us have earned a Bachelor's Degree from Jacksonville State University. Being a first generation college student means that from this point on, there are no excuses in our family. If the three of us could do it, then I know the future generations will be able to achieve it, too! I want our story to help inspire other first generation siblings. "
