Meet the First Gen Grads

& New Cohort of Storytellers for Change

First Gen grads

Mini-Documentary Series

First Gen Grads: Change Starts With Your Story, is a mini-documentary series that explores the narratives of six first generation college students from across the Puget Sound region in Washington.

We created this project to encourage schools and organizations to engage on a dialogue about why and how it's crucial to build spaces and create opportunities for the stories of our students to be heard. Their narratives are not only inspiring and a testament to their resilience, but also a reminder of the work we need to do to make our educational institutions more empathetic, inclusive and equitable. 

This is the first mini documentary series we produce at Storytellers for Change and this work was made possible thanks to our partnership with Ambassador Stories.
