Why Not Us?

Being the first in your family to attend college is daunting, but rewarding.

The College Board, in partnership with Roadtrip Nation created this compelling documentary entitled, Why Not Us?  Follow the journeys of four young people — all first in their families to go to college —  as they roadtrip across the country to interview inspiring individuals who were also first in their families to pursue higher education. 

After talking to trailblazing leaders — like Ana Maria Chavez, CEO of Girl Scouts of America, Grammy and Academy Award-winner John Legend, and Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz — the Roadtrippers are ready to embrace the opportunities ahead, and ask “why shouldn’t I succeed?”
