“Sí Se Puede!”: From First-Generation American To First-Generation College Student | Marcos Saldivar
“Nearly a decade later, while working three different jobs to put myself through school, I became the first in my family to graduate college from the University of Southern California (Fight On, Trojans!). And, in spite of all the hardships, I am thankful for my upbringing as it has given me a unique vantage point of the social, economic, and political struggles that a community faces when marginalized. More importantly, it’s what drove me to pursue journalism: to give the silenced, disadvantaged minorities a voice.”
