I’ve decided to use my blog to inspire young people and their parents. Every week I will feature a post written by you – someone with a great first-in-family college story – on my blog. If you want to use the internet and your story to inspire, please email Robin Caldwell at firstname.lastname@example.org with your story. The guidelines are simple:
- Write a 300 – 500 word count essay. We will edit it for you.
- Send us a high-res photo to feature with your story.
- If you are on Twitter, then we will need your handle to give you a shout-out.
- Talk about your first time applying for, being accepted into and going to college. Talk about any aspect of your journey that you feel will inspire a young person.
If you know someone with a really great story of being the first in their family to go to college or who had to overcome obstacles to get there, please send this post. There are young people and parents waiting to be inspired.
Thank you so much.
