You have some stuff in here that suggests you might be able to write a compelling PS about being first gen, the challenges surrounding that, and how you overcame them, but right now this reads mostly like a resume/transcript combo and it's pretty boring.

+1. They know your GPA and resume - don't have to regurgitate it in the PS. Focus on telling a single story and doing so well.
