Change the World

Briana Tetsch, MSW ’20

I Am Extremely Grateful

I am extremely grateful to have had this opportunity to get emergency funding, and I am grateful also to have a School of Social Work Scholarship. Both were life-changing. I am a first generation Latina, and in my case that comes with a lot of intergenerational poverty. Everyone wants representation in the academy, but when opportunities are presented, they usually come with a cost.

Why I'm Here

I am really proud of where I come from, and I am filled with conviction, but I needed support to finish my graduate program... As my time in the program reaches its end, I will continue to support social change efforts in my community.

Impact of the Scholarship

It was really helpful to go back and visit my mom and my aunt who has a chronic illness. It was important to know that I did not have to be isolated in Michigan, that I was not stuck here, but could still be a resource to my family. You can only give so much emotional support from 2,000 miles away.
