La'Tonya "L.T." Rease Miles // Empowering First-Generation Students

In this episode, I talk with La’Tonya “L.T.” Rease Miles, Director of the First-Year Experience at UCLA, about her journey from golden child in her family to first-generation college student to golden leader paving a way for first-gen students and the professionals that support and empower them. LT was a latecomer to identifying as “first-generation” but when she learned about it while she was in her doctoral program she knew she checked all of the boxes and set out to educate students like herself. Today you can follow her discoveries as she consistently documents her experiences through numerous digital platforms - from Instagram, Twitter, and blogging. LT is always looking for the next community to build and the next narrative to share all while empowering first-generation students!
