The First Gen Network

Ifounded The First Gen Network in 2016 to bridge the personal and professional gap for first generation college graduates-turned-professionals. As a volunteer and mentor for America Needs You first-generation college students, I reconnected to this part of my identity and sought out other first-gen professionals, but soon realized they were hard to identify. That's why I created a network that increases visibility of thriving first gen professionals. We've partnered with other nonprofits including America Needs You, Class Action and The Harvard First Gen group to host events in the New York City area.
