OPINION: Being FGEN is not a disadvantage, it's an asset

Within my college experience, I have come to understand that being FGEN is not a disadvantage. Knowing that I have an opportunity, one of which was not available to my parents, to better my life serves as a driving force to my success. Understanding the hard work of the generations before me helped me get a college education, and being able to offer a different perspective on the college process and be a voice for those who come from the same background makes this part of who I am just that much more valuable.
