The needs of #firstgen students are often thought of in relation to the experiences of #secondgen students, defined by scholars as students whose parent has earned a 4-year degree, and presumably can guide or assist their #secondgen child in navigating the higher ed experience.
But what happens when a student has a parent with a 4-year degree who lacks the necessary financial, intellectual, social, or cultural capital to successfully assist their child? I would like to share my story and propose a third category, that I'm calling #oneptfivegen.
My mom was #firstgen to the US and college, making her the first true trailblazer. According to scholars, this makes me #secondgen American and undergrad. While being #secondgen American is a unique experience, being a #secondgen student is not.
