“I am literally still in school because of LeadMN. They have supported me in terms of emergency grants and scholarships. I was told I was not eligible for a lot of emergency assistance on campus and through agencies. I was denied so many times. Because of my scholarship through LeadMN, I am able to afford tuition and remain in school.”

It's either why are you using our resources and leaving or, if I stay here, why are you using our resources and taking jobs that are meant for the American people? And so we struggle with this rhetoric of like, OK, do I belong? Or do I not belong?”
