20 Confessions From Students Who Are The First In Their Family To Attend College

"I'm so proud of myself!!"

Going to college is a big deal for anyone, but it can be an especially important life event for those who are the first in their families to attend. 

Whisper, an app that allows people to anonymously share their stories, recently rounded up 20 confessions from students who are the first in their families to attend college, including one single mom who's 11 months away from finishing her MBA.

"Please don't treat me like I am stupid just because I am 'only' a waitress,' the woman writes. 

The confessions articulate a range of emotions, from feeling proud and excited, to nervous and anxious. Each one, however, expresses a sense of accomplishment.
