Why uAspire?

As an immigrant from Vietnam, I am instilled with the belief that resiliency and education can pave a pathway out of poverty. Through my family's sacrifices, I became the first person in my family to graduate college. I am deeply grateful for the many opportunities in my life and I am excited to work alongside the committed team at uAspire to make these opportunities possible for other students just like me.
