My First Generation Story

About the Student

FGV: Shauna Brayman

Shauna Brayman sees herself as an example for her seven siblings. Shauna, the oldest of eight and the first to go to college in her family, wants to be a nurse and a film director. At UNO, smaller classes, mentoring and goal setting have all been helpful to Shauna. She says the positive messages about education she heard from an aunt and uncle and her grandmother (who did not go to college and was married at 14) were important.
