Almost every valid study shows what most people know. Higher education means higher salaries. It doesn't guarantee it (Bill Gates does not have a college degree), but it does overall suggest you will earn more money.
Your family members may be jealous that you are trying to earn something that they were unwilling or unable to do. You actually don't need to convince them of anything. You need to do what is best for you. If they don't accept that, there is nothing you can do. Don't let anybody, even family members, keep you from doing what you know is right. Explain to them why you are doing it and why it is best for you and your future. That is all you can do. Good luck!
Be strong and stubborn about it! College is VERY necessary in this day. Continue to see the value of education and keep fighting! Good luck!
But as for practical things you can do: talk to your parents about the opportunities and careers. Tell them what you want to pursue as a career and they should understand. It's hard being the first person in your family to go to college, but you can do it!
PS: Don't worry about them. You know what you have to do.
