First-Generation Friars — Dr. Mabel Abraham ’03 and Dr. Tristan Botelho ’07

Siblings Dr. Mabel Abraham ’03 and Dr. Tristan Botelho ’07 have a lot in common. These PC alums both earned doctorates from MIT’s Sloan School of Management, and now they both teach at Ivy League institutions — Abraham at Columbia University and Botelho at Yale. They also were both first-generation college students, meaning they were the first in their family to graduate from college. As Providence College recognizes National First-Generation College Celebration Day on November 8, we talk with Abraham and Botelho about their research, their experiences at PC, and how being first-gen impacts their work in the classroom.
