In Red Lion there are a handful of first generation students who juggle the best of both worlds, from regular schooling, working on subjects such as language arts and math to going home, speaking different languages, and having completely different customs and traditions.
First-generations are people who are the first in their family to grow up in the United States. They are a unique group of people who go into the world knowing very little, and have to adapt to several cultures and ways of living, at the same time.
