We are more than just students
Yes, we are students but we have other identities and roles that we carry and bring with us. Such as being a mother, athlete, babysitter, family translator. We juggle family, school, and work, among other things. The institution’s expectations of what a student is does not match our realities! We take care of ourselves and have many responsibilities. We are individuals who have other things going on outside of school that make us who we are.
