OPINION: Why are you first?

I am not here because I am the smartest or have the money. I am here because I found scholarships, family motivation and support. I am studying because I want to see more diversity in the health field and more bilingual access for patients that are non-native English speakers. So when you ask me “Why are you first?” it is because of encouragement, support, resources and because I feel I have something to contribute that is worth having a college education.
