Gainesville is my home and has been for as long as I can remember. I grew up here and currently attend Oglethorpe University, where I am majoring in political science and minoring in urban leadership. I’m a proud Georgia resident and student, but due to my immigration status, achieving my education and career dreams has proven more difficult due to state policies preventing me from accessing in-state tuition rates in the very place I call home.
