“I am a first generation college student. Though my entire family is happy that I am the first to go to college and to medical school, they do not have the means to help me financially. This creates very stressful situations when emergencies occur. I am so appreciative that there are funds like the Carolina Medical Friends and Family Fund available to our students. For students like myself, it gives me the feeling that I am not alone when an unexpected event occurs. This is what it means to be a part of the Carolina family. There are always people there for you when you need help the most.”
