Meet Solomeia Kojin, Honors College senior

2009-03-02 by

Solomeia Kojin is featured in the Spring 2009 UAA Accolades magazine for being the first in her family to go to college. She hails from a family of Russian Orthodox Old Believers on the Kenai Peninsula where, as she explains, marrying and raising a large family is the standard expectation for every young girl. Solomeia had a different idea. Today, as a psychology major in the Honors College, she is conducting empirical research and preparing medical school applications. Kojin is featured in the spring 2009 Accolades magazine.

Meet Eliz Valdez, dental hygiene student at UAA

2009-03-02 by

Eliz Valdez is featured in the Spring 2009 UAA Accolades magazine as a first-generation college student. Her mother and father both had high school degrees and worked hard—sometimes at two jobs each—to secure food and shelter for their family of four girls in Pueblo, CO. “Better yourself,” Eliz’s mother used to say, “so you don’t have to struggle like we did.” Eliz translated that advice into a college degree, and will graduate in May from the dental hygiene program at UAA’s Allied Health department. Valdez is featured in the spring 2009 Accolades magazine.
