As a first-gen and low-income college student, Pomona was filled with challenges for me. However, through the Quest, now FLI, community and mentors in a variety of places, I've been able to thrive.

From my time at Pomona I grew in my love for learning, desire to advocate for others, and continued my journey of self-discovery. My advice to current students would be that there are too many options available for you to settle for less than what you want.
