“Personally, I consider my time organizing. Like, I have to take care of my brother. I have to take care of my family and then I have to go to college and care for my studies and for my papers. Personally, I try to balance most of it, especially during the weekends, where I can focus all my attention on my family. The rest of the week, I have all this time set especially for school. Being here at the library, recording stuff, getting sources, whatever.”

“Learning responsibilities for my studies and changing the way I think, from a high school student to a college student. The biggest challenge for me is having to keep up with everything, with my work, with my studies, remembering to check my emails, remembering to turn in assignments on time, remembering to show up to study sessions and to lectures.”

“I think the biggest challenge is food. Let’s say that you are trying to get your schedule, to come two days a week; you need to either bring food or you have to buy food, and it sucks buying food. I always bring my food and the problem with that is that there is always huge lines for the microwaves. Over the years, there is only four microwaves in the union. I know that now there is some upstairs. They should invest in at least two more, and some of them don’t even work. It’s tough eating. Sometimes I’ll skip class and then go eat.”
