Nakaiya's #WeBelongInCollege Story

Nakaiya was a great student all throughout high school, but college was a different beast. She then experienced a new level of stress, anxiety, and depression when struggling with a new class in college. Her advice – take advantage of all your resources on campus!

Zakiyat's #WeBelongInCollege Story

Like many students, Zakiyat started college during the COVID pandemic.
