The First-Gen Lounge

By Dr. Eve Hudson

The First-Gen Lounge (formerly The Purpose University Podcast) 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 biz.In our sessions, you’ll get practical strategies for navigating adulthood, defining success, embracing values, being happier, boosting productivity, managing relationships, improving wellbeing, understanding purpose, and simply living a fulfilled life. From entrepreneurship, mentorship, career and graduate school advice, finances, networking, adversity, disappointment, and fear, to being of service and changing the world around you —we chat about it all (you can expect quite a few laughs, too)!It is here where YOU find community—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. In this space, we all belong and will uplift, inspire, and empower one another by sharing our truth as we tell our stories because... we want for you more than anything is for you to continue to grow and become the person you truly desire to be.Simply grab a seat, get real comfortable, and join the conversations every Thursday at 9pm!
