SPEAKING

FOR FIRST-GEN STUDENTS

 

T Speaks. 

T is a nationally recognized first-gen speaker. His message and stories have inspired thousands of students across hundreds of college/university campuses. A first gen himself, T is a product of an inner-city public school. He grew up in a low-income government public housing with a food stamp as their main source of income. His mother never went to school and his father has only a fourth grade level of education. But his triumph over seemingly impossible odds provides him the catalyst to wanting more from life that leads him to earning a Master's degree from Harvard and becoming one of the sought-after first gen speaker in the country, touching the lives of thousands with his powerful message of resilience and determination.

Thank you so much once again for spending time with SEL. I could see and appreciate how you had to adjust some changes on the fly to ensure you covered what was necessary. Even more so, I appreciate you valuing our students' time and questions, placing greater importance on that than your content. That reflects how much you care for our students...Thank you for sharing your story. Thank you for being more than a one-and-done speaker. I am sure other speakers care, but you demonstrate this by a willingness to keep in contact with and even mentor them. I have never even heard of another speaker doing so...I certainly look forward to the next workshop and cannot wait to build it up to other students, having witnessed what awaits them.
