Hey there! It's fantastic that you're going to be the first in your family to attend college. There are definitely resources out there for first-generation college applicants like yourself. Some colleges and universities have dedicated programs to support first-gen students throughout the application process and beyond. You can also check out organizations like QuestBridge and the College Advising Corps, which aim to help first-gen and low-income students access higher education. Additionally, you might want to reach out to your high school guidance counselor, as they can provide valuable information and support throughout your journey. Don't forget to ask your teachers and mentors for advice as well. They might have been through a similar experience and can offer their insights. Best of luck with your college search, and I hope you find the right resources to help you succeed!
