Our approach to First Generation Immigrant struggles

Being a First-Gen American means that you are the first person in your family to be born or raised in America. Being a first-generation American can come with its unique set of challenges. It can feel like a push and pull between two cultures and the lived experiences are different from those whose families have lived in the US for generations. 

These are some first generation immigrant struggles:

  • Feeling like you “can't afford to fail” due to pressure of making parent’s sacrifice ‘worth it’

  • Conflict with family members due to differences in POV 

  • Deep desire to “do things differently” from parents 

  • Stress related to adjusting to/navigating a new culture 

  • Sense of confusion around your identify around culture 

  • Feelings of being a ‘fraud’ 

  • Stigma and discrimination based on ethnicity, culture, or immigration status 

  • Shame around your unique experiences 

  • Intergenerational trauma 


At be Morr, we believe that you are the expert of YOU. Our sessions are collaborative, and we deeply believe that every human is unique. Although we can identify with your struggles, based on our own experiences as Women of Color, we don’t assume that it’s similar to yours experiences. Our sessions are led with curiosity.
