I knew when I stepped into TRIO that a long struggle was coming to an end. It was the beginning of a new journey, for the first time in my life I felt I could start to explore my dreams. I have hope for a better future now because I can put all my energy into my studies and focus on learning. My TRIO advisor is awesome, she looks out for opportunities and scholarships that benefit my student career. When I feel lost or confused I know I always have somewhere to go and someone to talk to.
