PERSONAL STATEMENT

Co-presented with WGBH-World Channel

Three seniors at Brooklyn high schools are determined to get their entire classes to college, even though they aren’t even sure they are going to make it there themselves. They are working as college counselors in their three schools because many of their friends have nowhere else to turn for support. PERSONAL STATEMENT follows Karoline, Christine and Enoch as they tirelessly work to realize better futures for themselves and their peers. They struggle and they stumble, but refuse to succumb to the barriers that prevent so many low-income students from attending and graduating from college.
