In the quote by Kevin Abdulraham it explains that if an individual can take any disadvantage whether it is psychical or mental and turn it into an advantage can make the drive in the individual unstoppable. Additionally, Banks-Santilli (2015) explains that students who are entering college feel that they are breaking the continuation of their family’s values (Para. 2). This feeling of betrayal can put an emotional toll on the student if they feel that their family does not support their decisions.
