Description

First-generation students face a number of difficulties. With the right resources and support, first-generation students can build the internal and secure the external resources they need to overcome their challenges and succeed at college. There are three critical elements to being resilient in an ever-changing and connected world as a first-generation student. (1) Taking time to get to know yourself and build your confidence: Recognizing that we are always evolving and taking the time to reflect and develop awareness of how our desires and vulnerabilities have shifted. (2) Recognizing that we do not live in a vacuum and learning how to ask for help: Even when it is hard, being open to engaging with others by staying curious and open-minded. (3) Being kind to yourself and working through any guilt you have: Recognizing that you are setting expectations for yourself and others, whether they are spoken or unspoken. I will host a conversation around these three elements and share practical and inquiry-based coaching tools and techniques that can be used by first-generation students immediately to shift how they approach engaging with uncertainty.
