"Why Not Us?" American Graduate Special
Get ready to hit the road with four college students who grapple with the internal and external challenges that come with being first-generation college students.
Roadtrip Nation will have a one-hour special titled “Why Not Us?” and will follow the four students – Jasmine, Felipe, Jenny and Johnathan – across the country as they interview those who have been in the first-generation college student shoes, such as singer John Legend and Girl Scouts CEO Anna Maria Chavez.
Each road trip student also has a different story, such as Jenny who lost both of her parents at an early age and is struggling to put herself through college.
The special will really examine how students overcome personal obstacles to reach success.
"Why Not Us?" airs Monday, June 8th, at 9pm on MPB TV.
