My name is Tamam (you can call me T). As a TRiO Alumni turned Student Trainer, I'm dedicated to helping those whom I once resembled--the first-gen low-income TRiO students--beat the odds. I hold a Master's degree from Harvard and I've had the honor of inspiring, empowering, and transforming the lives of thousands of first-gen TRiO students on hundreds of college and university campuses over the years. However, my own journey as a first-gen low-income student was anything but easy…
...One of the best investments that we could have made for our students...His training was very interactive...and really had some amazing activities....The community that he helped us continue to build in our program was worth every penny...It was such a blast! We had so many laughs and became an even closer TRIO family because of his training. After the training, Tamam continues to make himself available to myself, our staff and our students. I know our students have contacted him for advice as well. He’s very student centered!
