Introducing myself and my journal: Being a multiracial, first generation college student in the US

Posted April 5, 2010 from United States

About Me: I am an american college student and among the first generation in my family to ever attend college. My father is an immigrant and my mother's grandfather also immigrated here from the Philippines. I am very proud to be so multicultural. Currently I am studying sociology/anthropology in school!

My Passions: Helping the oppressed and underrepresented populations, communication, meeting new people.

My Challenges: Listening to my own voice and finding confidence to do the things I desire.

My Vision for the Future: Working for the marginalized and representing those without a voice.
