College should be affordable for everyone, argues student

As a college student who grew up on a military base and in a southern town, 22-year old Daphne Hines has a unique perspective on the world.

Her father was a United States Airman, so Daphne spent ten years of her childhood living on an Air Force base. Daphne thrived on the base. The community was global, diverse, and welcoming, and exposed her to foreign languages and cultures. The tight-knit support structure sometimes felt like a large extended family: “The bonds of the military community were stronger bonds than the differences of race or ethnicity,” she says.
