Storying a Reflexive Praxis Book Cover

Sometimes, being a first generation college student can feel isolating. It can help to know that there are others who can empathize and can share their own personal experiences. In this chapter, find out how college students worked with a professor on their campus to co-create their identities as being the first in their families to attend college, and why that co-creation, those identities, and their stories matter.
