College Schedule

During the summer of 2019, Midstory’s college interns from all over the U.S. came together with incoming freshman at the University of Toledo and participants in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion’s Multicultural Emerging Scholars Program. We at Midstory believe in the power of stories, and in bridging gaps by talking about what unites us all as humans. In a multi-week collaborative effort, the students produced mini-projects based upon their own stories as they start their college careers here in Toledo. Because of the personal nature of this narrative, the views and opinions expressed are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect Midstory's views.

Amber Hopkins is an incoming freshman at University of Toledo. She grew up in Cincinnati and is studying psychology, hoping to be a therapist in the future. Amber’s poem uses her busy college schedule to demonstrate not only her parent’s unique roles in shaping who she is, but also how she has become herself, as an individual.
