Here’s some #WednesdayWisdom that Wes Moore shared at our #BeatingTheOdds Summit: “You are exactly where you belong. Everywhere that you are, you are not there because of someone’s benevolence. You are not there because of a social experiment. You are not there because someone wants to sprinkle diversity into a room. You’re there because that room would be incomplete if you weren’t there. You’re there because that conversation would be weak if your voice was not included.” #ReachHigher #BetterMakeRoom

“It was a true privilege to have a real conversation around first-generation college students with recent grad Rachel Scott, Philly Eagles finest Malcolm Jenkins, and former First Lady Michelle Obama. As a first-generation college student, I remember the fear I had to overcome and the hurdles I had to jump in order to get where I’m at today. One thing we all agreed on was that we couldn’t have done it alone. It truly does take a village. I’ve been blessed with many opportunities thanks to my support system. There is no substitute for hard work. Public Speaking was never my “thing” but when I say I’ve taken every opportunity extended to me, I mean it. From almost being a high school dropout — to being a student parent —to advocating for post-secondary education with Michelle Obama. The journey has been crazy. Thank you @bettermakeroom, #reachhigher, and @michelleobama for making this all possible for first-generation students like myself.” -Ariel Ventura-Lazo #BetterMakeRoom #ReachHigher

Repost @michelleobama: Today I’m headed to @Howard1867 for our 5th annual #BeatingTheOdds Summit, where I’ll be reunited with some of the students I’ve met over the years. One of these is a resilient young woman named Rachel McKenzie Scott—and her story, like so many of those we’ll be celebrating today—couldn’t be more inspiring. For much of her life, Rachel felt like the world was working against her. She lost her mother when she was 12 and not long after, her father left their family. She and her siblings became wards of the state of Washington and her two younger siblings entered foster care. She’d go to bed at night wondering where her next meal would come from, and she’d wake up in the morning worried that she wouldn’t have clean clothes for school. Every day, she worried about her family’s safety, and she often thought about dropping out and giving up. But Rachel bet on herself. She asked for help and leaned on her mentor, Melissa Repp, to get through high school and college. At the University of Washington, she found professors she could open up to, friends she could relate to, and a trusty support dog, Blu, who was always there when she needed her. Today, she’s a graduate from the University of Washington, about to fulfill her lifelong dream of becoming an oceanographer. But that’s only part of the story—I’ll let Rachel tell you the rest. Check out my Instagram Story today as she takes it over and gives you a behind-the-scenes-look at today’s Summit.

For five years, we've been meeting with some of the most inspiring and resilient first-generation college-bound students from all over the country. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ These students have faced many obstacles on their journey to higher education. And even during moments when they wanted to give up – they kept moving forward. They persevered and never gave up. We're so proud to celebrate and support these students by hosting our annual #BeatingTheOdds Summit with @MichelleObama. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ This year, we're hosting our fifth anniversary #BeatingTheOdds Summit on Tuesday, July 23rd.

“This is Darius Wesley, who I first met at a #BeatingTheOdds Summit back in 2014. Back then, he’d just graduated from North Lawndale College Prep in my hometown of Chicago. Growing up on the west side of the city, Darius lost friends and family members to violence and drugs. In high school, he was forced to uproot his life when his mother faced a series of health issues. At times, Darius told me, he just wanted to give up. But he didn’t. He couldn’t. It’s not who he is.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Five years later, he’s channeled the lessons he learned while overcoming those obstacles into a marketing degree at Cleveland State University—becoming the first person in his family to graduate from college. I could not be prouder of this young man. Looking back, Darius said, "I appreciate those challenges-–they caused me to reach back and remember the support system that I have in the back of my pocket. All of the teachers and coaches that believe in me as a player, as a student, as a person. My mother, sisters, and brothers are all looking for me to just do better." ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Next Tuesday, Darius will once again join me in DC for our 5th anniversary #BeatingTheOdds Summit with @ReachHigher2020—one of the most inspiring days of the year. And in the meantime, I want to hear from all of you: Who's a young person in your life who is #BeatingTheOdds? Share their stories with me in the comments below. #ReachHigher⁣⁣” - @michelleobama

Corey’s story is one of resilience, growth, and hard work. He’s overcome addiction and countless obstacles throughout his life. And for a long time, he never saw himself going to college.⁣ ⁣ But, he would later go on to get his GED, and associate’s degree at Fullerton College. This fall, he’ll work on obtaining his bachelor’s degree at Stanford University on a full-ride scholarship.⁣ ⁣ Here’s what he has to say:⁣ ⁣ “This is the story of how education changed my life and the life of my daughter. Moreover, it is how education has changed the future path of my family forever. My daughter is witnessing this all first-hand, and she won’t have to face the struggles of being a first-generation college student. ⁣ ⁣ For Kasandra, education will be a family tradition to continue, a graduate degree will be something normal to obtain, and her children will see a life with less struggle.” -Corey Lamb ⁣ ⁣ Who inspires you to never give up on your dreams?

"It's not a unique story. But it's a story of my success, of how I worked hard to get my education...I have done this for my family, for my community." -Adolfo González Last year, Adolfo, saw his daughter become the first person in their family to earn a bachelor’s degree. It was a proud moment for all of them. For years, Adolfo would work multiple jobs and take classes whenever he could to earn his GED. He would then go on to take classes at Hartnell College. After starting -- then dropping out -- and ultimately coming back, Adolfo would earn his associate’s degree in Spanish with honors in 2017. But he wasn’t done yet. Adolfo went on to enroll at the same university as his daughter, @CSUMB. Last month, at the age of 58, Adolfo graduated with his bachelor’s degree! His next goal is to become a teacher in his community, and get his master’s in education! #ReachHigher #ClassOf2019 Photo Credits: Kate Cimini / @salinascalifornian

“At this moment in my life I couldn’t be more proud of myself and all the accomplishments I’ve made so far. Being an inner city kid from Chicago, growing up in a household of 7, I have had to overcome many trials and tribulations. I’m blessed to have had the power to change the narrative of being a young African American male in the U.S. Following the potential that God has given me to pursue a higher education, I have met many great mentors and people along the way. So, I say to all students who are on the journey to achieve a higher education that you must have the willpower, determination, and discipline. Understand that times will get hard, but you got this! Just put your best foot forward and work hard to achieve your goals. Remember, you are limitless, and you are enough! Understand that nothing in life worth having will be easy, but it will be worth it in the end.” —Darius Wesley, #BeatingTheOdds alum and recent graduate from Cleveland State University #ReachHigher #BetterMakeRoom #MondayMotivation

Every year, we hear about inspiring graduation stories from students of all over the country. Many of whom are the first in their family to graduate from high school or college. For the next two weeks, we’ll share some stories from recent graduates who’ve worked hard to make their dream of completing college come true. Students like, Joyce Lowenstein, who at 93 just graduated with an art history degree (with honors!) from Georgia State University. Her pursuit of higher education began in 1943 at the University of Wisconsin, but life happened and she was never able to finish college. In 2012, Joyce – now living in Atlanta – wanted to cross two things off her bucket list: to graduate from Georgia State University and to walk across the stage at graduation to accept her diploma. She was able to accomplish both of these goals in May! What’s the next thing on her bucket list? To take an online fine art appraising course and start working in that business! #ReachHigher #BetterMakeRoom

“This resilient and hardworking young lady is Anta Nije. I first met Anta back in 2015 when I spoke at King College Prep’s graduation on the South Side of Chicago. Three years later, I caught up with Anta in Atlanta while talking to a group of college students during my #IAmBecoming book tour. A first-generation college student, she graduated just last month from @Spelman_College where she studied political science and journalism. While at Spelman, she hosted a podcast, mentored first-year students at Morehouse, joined Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, and became Miss HBCU. Now with her degree in hand, she’s taking her next step by interning at a fashion company in Paris and with a dream of one day building her own fashion brand. I’m so proud of the person that Anta has become. She’s a terrific example of the many bright young people in our country working hard to lift up themselves and their families through education.

"Bryan, an RC student going to SDSU said to his parents, "“Gracias por tus sacrificios a hora es mi turno de cuidarlos a ustedes”... Thank you for your sacrifices now it's my time to take care of you guys. The narratives, lived experiences, smiles, and tears of over 500 first-generation students and their families from San Diego to Santa Ana were celebrated last week. Our students from San Diego earned over 19 million in scholarships from all sources, but we know the work is just beginning. As you celebrate with us and our student's growth, do not let your expressed love, check-ins, venmo payments and text messages stop, we are only beginning.

"During PSJA North Early College High School's #CollegeSigningDay, we made sure to get as many people in our school involved to celebrate this momentous occasion. Our National Honor Society students helped capture memories by taking photos of students while our mariachi band performed. We had community leaders and school officials attend the event and show their support, too. College Signing Day is so important because many of our students will be the first in their family to go to college, and we are some of the few encouragers they have in their corner. Many of our students are living in the U.S. with friends or possibly on their own since most of their parents living in Mexico. College Signing Day is a celebration of those students, showing them that regardless of the factors and obstacles they've faced throughout their high school years, they have decided to push through and make it to their next chapter. College Signing Day is a big celebration that means, “We believe in you! You got this!” -Victoria Lomaa, college advisor #ReachHigher #BetterMakeRoom

Today marks the 65th anniversary of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case, Brown v. Board of Education. Five years ago, former First Lady @MichelleObama visited Topeka, Kansas to celebrate its 60th anniversary. During that visit, Mrs. Obama met with high school students participating in a local GEAR UP program and spoke at Senior Recognition Day for Topeka seniors. She told the students these powerful words, “The truth is that Brown vs. Board of Education isn’t just about our history, it’s about our future. Because while that case was handed down 60 years ago, Brown is still being decided every single day–-not just in our courts and schools, but in how we live our lives. Every day, you have the power to choose our better history–by opening your hearts and minds, by speaking up for what you know is right, by sharing the lessons of Brown v. Board of Education–the lessons you all learned...wherever you go for the rest of your lives. And I know you all can do it.” #ReachHigher #FBF

“As a result of our first [#CollegeSigningDay] four years ago, our staff incorporated the “Reach Higher Initiative.” The intent behind this year-long project is to limit barriers and provide access to all students regarding opportunities available to them for their post-high school plan. I think the best advice I can give to anyone wanting to host a College Signing Day is to do what best fits your school’s culture and student body—not all College Signing Days should look the same. This event should fit your school community and encapsulate what is important to you and the students you serve. Build as you go to create a quality, authentic event for your students; this will ensure buy-in from both staff and students. Four years ago, with a group of teachers, counselors, and administrators discussing in Room 143 how to move forward with this project, we never thought we’d be where we are now. We care deeply about providing these opportunities for our students, and we are willing to do whatever we can to make their dreams a reality while celebrating them along the way. At the end of the day, our very first decision to put on this event has ultimately been the best decision we have ever made." -Colleen Pancake, AVID Teacher at Governor John R.
