Description

I first met Carmendita as she was graduating from high school and needed her physical to go to college. Carmen, a bright, African American female, was so excited to be going to Muskingum University. The first person in her family to go to college, she had a full academic scholarship and planned to become a veterinarian. She had younger siblings and wanted to show them that with hard work, they could go on to higher education, too. As a first-generation college attender and oldest of four myself, I spoke with her about the challenges and future rewards. Carmen grew up in the inner city of a declining rust belt city and was interested in helping her family financially as well. She looked forward to being able to help younger siblings and her mother when she was able to become a vet.
