For many students, entering college is a rite of passage that resembles hope and excitement. But for many others - especially students of underrepresented communities - this experience is often one riddled with anxiety and worries. Young people have to face big challenges: figuring out how to meet the financial obligations that come with their education, and learning to navigate new spaces often without help or representation.
In this final episode of Season Two, we meet two guests that have defied all odds in their educational journey and in turn, have become action leaders in their communities - Aimee Allison and Cheyenne Chandler. Aimee is a writer, democratic organizer, founder and president of “She The People,” an organization dedicated to increasing voter engagement of women of color. After beginning her career in the military, she explains how she made a difficult decision that led her to support some of the biggest political campaigns of the last few years. Then, hear from Cheyenne Chandler, a recent graduate from the University of Kentucky who didn’t crack under immense personal and financial pressures during her studies. Instead, she shares how she was able to use her experiences as a catalyst to fuel her passions, and how she leveraged her university’s resources to help her achieve her goals.
