Meet Jennifer Graber, Ph.D.
February 28, 2024,
What is your first-gen super power?
Facing down imposter syndrome every time!
How has being first-gen followed you after graduating from college?
Imposter syndrome is real and has followed me even after earning a Ph.D. and landing a really good job. It’s sometimes hard to remember that you’ve done all the things others have done — and perhaps more — to get to the place you are.
What advice would you give current First-Gen Longhorns?
Talk to other first-gen folks. They can answer questions you might be otherwise afraid to ask. They can commiserate with the feelings of bewilderment that come with being new to university life.
