Be a student affairs professional, but remember to be a real person, too. Not all open-ended questions have to have a grand plan in mind. We all long for connection and have a desire to “feel known.” Our students are no exception. Getting to know your students’ preferences and quirks is a meaningful way to build rapport and genuine rapport.

5. You’re really concerned about money. College is expensive and debt-inducing enough on a typical day, let alone during one of the worst financial crises in our nation’s history. Students who usually work jobs to help pay for school have not been able to do so, and parents who might help with some or all of the cost could have lost their jobs or had their hours reduced. Most other universities have been forced to make similar decisions, and are nervous that if they continue with online teaching this fall, students will demand at least a partial remission of tuition.

  • Props to you for graduating! �� ��

    Warning, long post: At about my third year in college I just lost interest. I wasn’t a first Gen college student in my fam (that’s my dad’s generation) but I was an only child so I did feel the pressure to do well. All through high school I put tons of pressure on myself and really did well, but ya I realized in college it was me and every other overachiever in the State was there. TLDR; I burned myself out, and failed a couple of my classes and didn’t put in the effort. I felt guilty because my parents were paying my tuition and were so worried about my future. I did graduate, my GPA was so-so, but my parents told me the important thing is I GRADUATED. I learned quickly that honestly most companies that I encountered don’t care about GPAs and the little things, but that diploma shows you stuck it through and made it when most others don’t. So yours is a MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENT �� �� ��

    Of course AFTER college was a whole nuther challenge…companies want someone with experience, but you can’t get experience without a job, that whole paradox �� ��‍♂️ My first job was completely unrelated to my degree, I hated it and it’s almost like I went to college for nothing. But hey, gotta start somewhere. After a few roadblocks I finally had someone give me a chance (got paid real low but it’s all about padding the resume) and I moved up. One lesson my dad taught me as an immigrant himself: Just because you’re in Job #1 doesn’t mean you’re married to it. Do the job, and keep searching. Send out resumes and apply apply apply. Even if I wasn’t 100% qualified just apply, worst thing they would do is ignore me. And it worked. Imma tell u I went through 13 jobs over several years before I finally found one I stayed with long term, and each position I got paid a little more and a little more.

    Then I burned out again. I stopped caring, yadda yadda ��‍♂️. I quit, took a year off to just lounge around and live off my savings… Made my parents sick with worry but I really needed the break for my own mental sanity. After a year I did some volunteer work with the Peace Corps (one of the BEST experience of my life ❤️❤️❤️), and did some traveling for several months (again, one of thr BEST experience of my life, I don’t regret a thing). When I got back and felt ready to get back into the grind I realized my volunteer experience opened up some doors I never considered before, and now I live and work in a job that has changed my life for the better. My parents are so proud of where I am and what I did to get here. I am the happiest now than I have ever been ������ (I know, a job doesn’t define a person’s life, but this one is different ��. No I’m not a stripper ��)

    So IN SUMMARY (if you’ve read to this point, my apologies ��) whatever roadblocks and frustrations come your way, you’ll get through it. You have a world of opportunities out there (sans COVID), so just follow the road life opens up for you and see where it takes you. You’ll encounter forks and unpaved roads, and some roads will open up that you never expected… but just keep plugging away and you will eventually get there. Never ignore what your heart says. Take chances. It’s better to regret DOING something than NOT doing something. Life is an amazing journey, and you never know where it will take you, you just have to keep moving with it. I’m excited for your future, T! ��

  • As a recent UCLA graduate and being first generation I totally relate to your story! It took me a while to get adjusted to the competitive environment. What really helped me was being involved in first generation/Latinx empowering programs AND going to professor office hours to discuss my personal struggles as a first generation student. The environment at UCLA can be very hostile and it definitely takes a village to overcome all the challenges. Word of advice for anyone struggling with academics right now. Please reach out for help from a friend, professor, or therapist. You never know what you can be struggling with. A friend of mine had really bad test anxiety and she didn’t know until a professor suggested she get evaluated. Afterwards she was able to get accommodations for testing to help alleviate the anxiety. Her grades Improved so much! Good luck to all the first-generation babies getting your bachelors. You got this!

  • Congratulations on graduating college, Tori!
    As someone who has struggled with equating my personal value with academic and general success as well, I feel for you. The pressure of college hits different when academic failure is not just a simple failed test, but a whole self esteem crisis in the making. To break out of this vicious thought cycle and to work on your mental health in order to realize that your worth has never been and never will be determined by your (academic) success is so important for all students to realize. In reality, your worth is the most independent and indisputable thing about you, just realizing that for yourself is the hard part. So, I wish you all the best in figuring things out. I am looking forward to your next videos about how you have already dealt with prioritizing your mental health and this new collab you’ve got going on. It is amazing that you shine a light on mental health struggles of college students, which I believe more people should be aware of.:)

  • Hey Tori

    I graduated this year too and I’m felt super similar to you. My second year I got diagnosed with depression I went from an A student to a D student. I started medication and worked on my own mental health and got so much better and slowly worked back up to my A’s and then I graduated with 2nd class honours of the first division I was so proud of myself and then COVID-19 and now I’m working part time and can barely cover my rent. I know I should be grateful I have a job when so many have lost theirs but it’s hard, like I have to convince myself to get out of bed and go to work each morning.

  • Love love love this video. You are so brave to talk about your issues this openly. I understand that you’re not perfect, no one is. But you’re trying to be better, learn and do better and that is important. And bringing us along on the process, is admiral ❤❤

  • I have anxiety and depression too as well. On the first year of high school and college, mental illness sucks and I hate it! Especially when trying to meet new people and make friends. Well congratulations on graduating Tori ��‍������

  • I love this video. I’m not a first gen college student, but there was enough disparity in my parents’ and my college experience that I felt like I had to find my own way. Your experience sounded extremely similar, especially about having to drop courses when you just couldn’t take another F anymore.
    Now I’m struggling with the stress of finding and doing something worthwhile.
    Wishing you and all the people here well.

  • SorrysWe go to university because our spirits body souls mind etc all want to do it wanted to go to school to learns more after nursery primary secondary college university then work pleases we go there because we went to the university to play to have fun etcall to study’s more and more and never stop studying thanks

  • Aww tori you are so strong to share these experiences! I graduated HS this year and started college during a pandemic and it definitely wasn’t easy so I can see where you are coming from.

  • I just posted a long comment on your insta post about how I like your outspoken attitude in this video about the troubles you faced. I should’ve probably posted it here rather than over there.����‍♂️����‍♂️
    Hopefully you’ll read my reply there. The id is @bloo_sniffs_glue.
    I’ll look forward to more such videos from you!
    Stay safe during the pandemic!
    Trust me, you do not wanna be anywhere near a hospital, not even an ER for a cut or scrape at the moment!

  • Great topic to talk on, really needed it, even tho our views politically may be different, I still have respect for you as a content creator. Best of luck.

  • It took me about 6 years after college to get a career even then it took me about 3 to work my way up to financial stability, but I graduated In the 08 recession. My generation and yours have gone through alot and we are in completely unprecedented times so I would just say to not put too much pressure on yourself things work out the way they are supposed to. I work with Boomers who are on their 5th careers I don’t think anyone ever has a 5 or 10 year plan that they stick to. Stay awesome �� and take care of yourself.

  • I remember something Baseball Hall of Famer Jim Palmer once said; “you can’t be afraid to fail.” Its how learn.

    As for how I have dealt with obstacles in my life. I taught myself Zen and Bushido in 2018, and those philosophies have done wonders in my life. Also being a cancer zodiac sign helps as well.

    We all experience this in some way, and deal with it differently. But it’s that common thread that brings us all together.

  • I feel like you took this video out of my mind. I am terrible with failure and I just started a new school, where I have to learn in a new way, so this video really helped me. I am much younger and I live in a different country, but it still felt really good to have someone to relate to. Thank you Tori❤️

  • This channel must be liked and subscribe since the Government of India must know such a nice channel and there are such nice teachers existing. This needs 1 million thumbs up to such nice video.

  • I love you tori and I thank you for talking about the struggles you went through while being a student etc and thank you for being open about mental health. It’s so important to talk about. I loved being able to get to know you a bit more during this and hope you know your not alone ����

  • Hello Michelle! I love your way to teach english. I am some probless with pronunciation and phonetic, so can you help me or can you make a video about it?? �� God bless you!! bye bye

  • As a freshman in high school I can also relate to what you were talking about with the overwhelming work and all. I’m a homeschooler and I take 5 online classes with a rly difficult classical online academy along with a local speech and debate club. last year and this year (at least this past week which was my first for the school year) I rly felt that crippling feeling of failure when I got behind or didn’t do perfect on a quiz. My mental health has never been good and school problems just added onto it. Im realizing with help from my parents that it’s ok if I don’t get a perfect grade and it’s ok to ask for help when I need it. I’m still not doing perfect but I’m working on my mental state and excepting myself. Thank you for using your platform to talk about this and helping people in the process ❤️

  • I was valedictorian of my high school (class of 2011 as well as 3rd gen in my family) then I hit college and failed a chemistry laboratory class as a CHEMISTRY major. I was just not used to failures like this, nor was I familiar with the particular study habits a college student needed. Studied my rear off and was still barely passing my classes. I fell into a very deep, anxious depression to where no matter how hard I studied, I just could not get the material the way my professors wanted. Although I did graduate after five years, I suffer much of this depression to this day as a “I’m not good enough for this world” type of negativity. Now with all the political stuff going on as well as the coronavirus pandemic, I’ve further added on to this and have really been struggling keeping myself up, working a full time essential infrastructure job and still not making enough to cover rent or personal expenses.

    Congrats on making it through UCLA Tori, and thank you for sharing. I also saw everything on Twitter that has been going on with everyone like you, the C-team, and other fellow Reactors that have left FBE as a result of the toxicity in the workplace. Glad you got out when you did. Sending good vibes.

  • I grew up poor. Bowls of rice were common suppers.

    Not to say this is your scenario going from high school to University, but I find in High School people rely on memorization whereas in University you have to really understand the material and be able to apply it. Not everyone makes that adjustment. Maybe that isn’t the case for students getting into elite University schools generally speaking, not sure.

  • We don’t say “the univeristy” or “the school”, unless you do in India and this is just for Indians, I don’t know but that should be made clear.

  • Hello, Tori! My name is Alvin Ugochukwu. Thank you so much for making this video. I’m currently in my senior year of college at California State University, Sacramento and I’m a Computer Science major. I know that my senior year is going to be a lot of work, but I have the support of my friends and family to push me through. Even though my senior year of college is on Zoom University, I can always find ways to stay motivated with my classes. STEM life is not easy, Tori. Tori, I want you to know that I’ve been a fan of your for 6+ years and I know that you have so much to offer in the world. Stay classy, Tori!:)

  • This year is my last year of hs then I’m off to college. I honestly think this is gonna b me. Going to college is a way for me to make my parents proud n whenever I didn’t do something In hs I felt guilty and sad cuz I’ve how my parents grew up too. Anyway, thank you for sharing this.

  • Aww Tori. I am so glad to see you are okay and I am so sorry this is happening to you. I hope this comment makes you feel better. I love you!

  • Congrats on your Uni stuff. I can somewhat relate, I had to take a year off this last year of my university due to my mental health absolutely tanking in the second year, to the point of when getting ready to go back for 3rd year where I was pretty sure I wouldn’t be coming home for Christmas if I carried on. Catastrophizing everything was a massive problem for me too. Getting through the hardest parts of your college will hopefully make the future brighter for having work so hard to get through.

    I don’t know you personally, but you deserve to feel good about yourself and take care of yourself. Putting your mental health is so important and being open and honest is very brave of you. Best of luck in the future.

  • I really enjoy your lessons..teacher Michelle..
    The way you teach is tremendous..I like your teaching..you are my favourite teacher.here on this channel..its also v good lesson..love u teacher

  • Welcome to life, you should be proud, and you should be proud of your parents they raised you well. Take it from me who changed majors all over the place average grades yet made a very successful career. Grades do not equal success hard work does!! Intelligence is not the same as knowledge and both are not the same as experience. You proven your intelligence now your going through experiences, I see a very successful future ahead of you. Good luck keep up the hard work, no learning experience is wasted. ��
