We are thrilled to present the 2020-2021 PRIMIS edition. This year's journal includes the lived experiences of our "IamFirst" LEAD students and submissions from the 2020-2021 "IamFirst" Needs-Based Scholarship recipients. These students have created extraordinary pieces that represent their intersecting identities and achievements as UVU students.

Their stories are here, on display, for their peers, professors, families, and communities. We hope you enjoy exploring what they have to say.
