Title

Jesenia Rincones interview (audio and transcript)

Description

Interview with Jesenia Rincones conducted by Gayle Schaub for the GVSU Libraries' Connected Exhibit, displayed in September 2016. Edited clips of interviews accompanied watercolor portraits of students and an interactive watercolor activity for exhibit visitors. Jesenia graduated from Wyoming High School. She is a junior, majoring in nursing. She is a first-generation student from a big family and has made the Dean’s List the past two semesters, earning top grades in tough classes while working two jobs. One of her jobs is on campus, in the Financial Aid office. She is also involved with TRiO Student Support Services, a program for first-generation and limited-income students. She feels that this program has helped build her confidence academically and helped her, as a Latina student, find her place at GVSU and feel truly a part of the campus community. Balancing the demands of her work and school schedules sometimes leaves Jesenia little time for her super-supportive family and friends, but she handles her load with grace, ability, and perseverance.
