Jennifer's #WeBelongInCollege Story
Last updated July 27, 2022
After becoming pregnant in high school, Jennifer felt like her community doubted her. They questioned her ability to maintain a traditional education path and her drive to succeed. She graduated high school and started college with little guidance and ended up choosing a major she really didn’t have a passion for. She also faced imposter phenomenon as a woman in the STEM field, the voices of doubters from her past echoing in her head.
Jennifer had to come to terms with her own potential and found guidance and support from various school groups. She came to truly believe in herself and leads by example for her children and other students who struggle.
Jennifer was a recipient of a $1,000 #WeBelongInCollege Scholarship. Meet the other #WeBelongInCollege Scholarship Winners!
