How far we've come...-By Manny from Milwaukee

"How Far We've Come"

This video is no normal video. It should mean something very special to us all. This video isn't talking about the end of the world, but it's about being proud of what we've done so far and not to waste the time you've got. We, the scholars in C2C, are the first in our families to, hopefully, go to and graduate from college. We all are going the extra mile by applying to and attending Countdown to College. This shows that we care, that we want to be successful, and that we don't want blue collar jobs. "The sky is the limit." We all are shooting for the stars. Just think that because we had the motivation to do this that we get the opportunity to experience a college life. We know what to expect, we know what it will be like. This makes us far more experienced than those who don't prepare for college. We are the lucky 25, the first to be apart of this amazing first-generation initiative.
I, for one, am truly grateful for this opportunity, and
I am certain that the other 24 are just as grateful. This, truly, is a blessing.
