Listen to Abdullah, Chris, Stephany, & Victoria as they share their stories about getting through college.

Abdullah’s #WeBelongInCollege Story

Abdullah has always felt like an outsider due to his stutter. People at school would make fun of him relentlessly. He started to feel that college might not be for him. But with encouragement from his family, he realized that he belongs in college and now he’s working to inspire other students with disabilities that they belong there too! 

Chris’s #WeBelongInCollege Story

As a commuter student, Chris struggled socially in college. It seemed that the other students, especially those who were dorming, were socially engaged in a way he wasn’t. So he came up with a goal that ended up benefiting many other students who were equally eager to make more social connections.

Stephany’s #WeBelongInCollege Story

As soon as classes began, Stephany started to question if she belonged in college. She was afraid that she would fail because she is an immigrant and an English language learner. She knows when she transfers to a new school next semester, the same fears will return. But this time, she won’t let the fear make her question if she belongs.

Victoria’s #WeBelongInCollege Story

Victoria was so proud to be a first generation student. But when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, she started falling behind. She questioned whether she belonged as she compared herself to other students who seemed to be managing just fine while she struggled. Watch this story to see how Victoria realized she was not alone and once again came to believe that she belongs in college!
