(Part 1/3) "Born in Bangladesh.  Raised in America.  I'm brown.  I'm Muslim.  I'm American.  I'm from the hood.  Currently residing in the burbs. * I'm not Brown enough.  I'm not American enough.  I'm not Muslim enough.  I'm not hood enough.  I'm not suburban enough. Any of this sound familiar? * * A lot of us first generation kids share similar stories. And I wanted to share mine. I grew up in an inline city of Detroit, MI. Well, really like most first gen kids, most of us are from New York. I lived in eclectic cities my entire life. * I grew up with diverse kids who seem to share the similar first generation confusion. Thanks to the 2004 film, ABCD (American Born Confused Desi) we finally found a label, but there was never a positive light to this. Being called an ABCD has nothing but negative connotations associated with it, at least for me. * * Because first, I was born in Bangladesh. Second, I was confused, but not that kind of confused. And third, labels suck." at Detroit Riverfront

Day 102: 「ゆびわ!」Word of the Day: Yubiwa. Yanagawa is very well known for their grilled eel but those were too expensive to eat for lunch. So, my friends (✏ Day 53 word of the day) and I continued walking along the street to find a cheap place to eat. We kept walking and while we were walking, the worst thing happened to me. I was playing with my ring and it flew off my finger and into a street grate. I kneeled down and tried to find a way to fish it out but it was no use. After a while, I just knelt there, defeated. I didn't know what to do and the thought of me losing my ring that was passed down to me by my mother made me very emotional. Then, out of no where, a Japanese woman appeared from somewhere with a crowbar and asked us in Japanese if something fell. My friend told her "ゆびわ" or ring in Japanese. She tried to get it open with the crowbar but couldn't, so she ran back to where she came from and came back with a coat hanger and pliers. She fished it out with the coat hanger. She got my ring back! I remember crying and thanking her over and over again and all she said was "気をつけて" or be careful. On this day I learned a new Japanese word, though through an unfortunate circumstance. This was the second time I experienced unconditional kindness from a Japanese stranger. 💍 . .

From concrete who knew that a flower would grow 🌹🌹🌹. Thank you family and friends for the nourishment that you have all provided throughout these ardous years of education. In particular It would not have been possible without the love and support of the people in these pictures. When the weight on my back felt too heavy to carry, each of you took a share of the load without me having to ask . I am eternally grateful to each and everyone of you! I've made it!

So we did it, we finished 4 years of upward bound trio alumni but even if you didn’t go for 4 years it was still great to be able to meet you but I’m so happy I got the opportunity and chance to be apart of this amazing program also had the opportunity to meet great friends who I can consider as family, I love you guys and I hope one day to see you in future so if you need anything I’ll be here but I wish you guys on a successful journey in college and through life, I’m sure gonna miss all of you just looking back on my first year I was nervous and shy still am shy but you guys always helped me come out of my comfort zone and you guys were always a joy to hang out with my favorite part of Upwardbound was just being able to be in the same room with smart,kind,amazing,funny and successful friends and students, so all that being said is congrats to the class of 2018 and for completing 4 years of upward bound love you guys hope to you soon and also remember to keep moving forward ❤️👨🏻‍🎓👩🏻‍🎓🎓🎊🎉 #trio #northernarizonauniversity #unity #love #future #classof2018 #upwardbound #upwardboundalumni #success #goals #firstgeneration #family

Shoutout to Tiara for her acceptances to Livingstone College, Saint Augustine’s University, Fayetteville State University, Bennett College, Clinton College, Shaw University, Elizabeth City State University, and Central Piedmont Community College! Tiara will be a part of the #FirstGeneration college squad! • She left the following shoutout: S/O to mama and daddy for creating something this great and supporting me through EVERYTHING! • Tiara, girl you’ve got so much promise in your future. Right now might be a confusing stressful time with high school coming to an end but I want to encourage you that you know what you want to do - it’s just about taking the steps to get there. And with that said there are MULTIPLE ways to get there. There a multiple steps you could take. Be open to the idea that oftentimes our journeys don’t go the route we thought they would. God knows if you told me in high school that I’d be a College Adviser I’d have been like, “HOW FAM?! HOW? WHY?” You’re still getting to a place of purpose. You’re still poppin’. Don’t worry. • #BetterMakeRoom #ClassOf2018 #ClassOf2022 #ReachHigher #CollegeBound #DubC2College #MelaninMagic #BlackGirlMagic #BlackExcellence at West Charlotte High School

5 years ago on 4/20🌱🔜🌹 & now 7 weeks away 🎓 .. . . They’re absolutely right when they tell you college isn’t everything, because it isn’t. it’s just going to be whatever you make it.. going to college isn’t going to guarantee you money just like playing sports doesn’t guarantee the league 👜 . . . I’ve made this experience everything it could’ve been. my literal 💉 sweat 💦 & tears 😭 are on this campus. I learned how to organize 100’s of people, coordinate, plan budgets, book events, & so much more & all while picking up the predominantly white strategies to CONTINUOUSLY fuck shit up when I’m through here.. 🔑🚪 . . I’m happy I didn’t just sit in class & let this place run me out or drag me out.. a 👸🏿 black girl, first generation, put together by several places throughout California, from being on principals honor roll to academic disqualification in these 5 years.. 🤟🏾 the growth is felt 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹 make no mistakes, this really ain’t shit.. this is only the first step. . . . . . . . . #congraulations #graduation #blessed #focused #choices #makemoney #graduationseason #2018 #changes #blackhealth #fight #demand #firstgeneration #ucsc #bananaslug #organize at The Brighter Side
