From her South Los Angeles high school through her graduation from the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences this month, we followed first-generation college student Rubi Garcia through the years. Watch her grow as a person and a scholar as she talks about the experiences and opportunities she has had and how being a first-generation student at USC has affected her. It’s a fascinating tale.
