What to disclose in Interview

I have an interview for a summer interview at an equity research company in a week and a half. I am a rising junior, but I was first forced to miss the first semester of my sophomore year due to family financial issues. I am still on track to graduate on time and have a very strong academic record other than the missed semester. I am struggling to figure out if I should bring it up/how I should during the interview, especially since they have not asked for my transcript. I spent the missing semester working, but it was not really relevant experience. Any Advice?

Doesn't sound too bad. Just say you had to work to pay tuition.

"If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them." - Bruce Lee
