Hi, my name is Selena. I’m a freshman at North Lake College. My major is Real Estate and I am a TRIO SSS student. What motivated me to attend college as a first-generation college student was that I knew that it would pave the way for my younger siblings. Attending college is important to me because I knew I had to break the chain. In order for me to do so and to be successful I had to start from the bottom. I had to make a change
for me and my family and this is where it all began.
