Why the UW?
“I chose UW because it provided me with incredible and limitless opportunities that I was not exposed to growing up as a 1st gen student who was raised in a small agricultural town, such as traveling the world. UW made me feel welcomed, supported and empowered. The opportunities, experiences, and connections that I’ve created at UW helped me pursue my wildest dreams and for that I am so grateful. UW changed the life of a small-town 1st gen Latina girl, and I am excited to see how UW continues to impact the lives of other 1st gen students like myself.”
