Description

This is an informative and interactive session to explore the power and meanings of First Generation voices. The premise and learning objective of this session is that there is no shame or weakness in being a First Generation student. Witness to personal power and agency, even in the midst of life circumstances, can be exemplified through narratives. We each carry and typify the evolution of those narratives. Beginning that process of naming those narratives is the means to own one's purpose and place in life. The format of this session is first lecturette, and then breaking into small groups to begin the process of writing and exploring one's narrative. We will then regroup to summarize our learning.
