The First-Gen Lounge

By Eve Hudson, Ph.D.

The First-Gen Lounge is the FIRST podcast of its kind--highlighting the experiences of first-gens. It is a place where we, first-generation college graduates, come to kick it and talk honestly about this thing called life and entrepreneurship. You’ll cry. You’ll laugh. You’ll grow… and you’ll be inspired while listening to motivating stories and valuable lessons from fellow first-gens. In every session, you’re going to get practical strategies for becoming the best version of yourself. From entrepreneurship, mentorship, career and graduate school advice, boosting productivity, finances, networking, facing adversity, disappointment, and being of service and changing the world around you —we chat about it all (you can expect quite a few laughs, too)! More importantly, here YOU WILL find a strong community that will encourage you to keep growing each day—we’re people who break barriers and defy the odds but understand there is still much ahead of us; therefore, leaning on, and learning from, each other is what we do. So, go ahead and grab a seat, get real comfortable, and join the conversations every Thursday at 9pm EST!
