As an African American woman, and first-generation college student, my initial goal in law school was to keep my head above water. Commonly, first-generation college students lack the cultural, social, and financial capital that allows them to navigate higher education spaces smoothly. Moreover, they are also overwhelmingly minorities. We often do not have the same level of resources and support as some majority counterparts, who benefit from previous family guidance. Unfortunately, I had little direction on how to navigate higher education spaces which made it difficult to focus both on my grades, as well as my career aspirations after graduation. Considering these pressures, I felt underprepared.
