What are the challenges and tradeoffs in pursuing higher education? Is it worth it?

The cost is intimidating; the workload can cause a lot of stress; it is time consuming. It's definitely worth it because you can learn to do something you're interested in and move on to get a career you will enjoy; not just any old job to pay the bills.

How is getting a degree or certificate going to change your life?

I've learned to be more responsible through the course of earning my degree and I have matured. I am now more determined than ever to go into the field of my choice!

How are you going to use your education to make your generation the most successful ever?

I am currently working for the UTPA Valley Outreach Center and spreading knowledge of higher education/scholarships to high school students through our Go Center program. I am also reaching out to my peers and telling them all that I've learned that can help them in pursuing a higher education.

Why are you Generation TX?

I believe in this movement; I think it's wonderful that people are reaching out to today's youth and motivating them to go to college because I agree that ANY student is able to go to college, no matter what their circumstances are.
