First to the Finish Line

Finish Line

As recently tweeted by AAMC Pre-Med, a student blogs about what it’s like to be the first in her family to attend college and be pre-med, offering tips to other first-generation pre-meds, as well as their parents and family.

She writes:

…my freshman and First Generation advisors discouraged me from medical school and a career as a surgeon. They seem to think my goals are too ambitious because I don’t yet have many role models to look up to… However, I’m determined to prove to myself that I can achieve my dreams and make my family proud.
