Why uAspire?

As a first-generation college graduate, I’m excited to help similar students achieve their higher educational goals. I believe that obtaining a college degree can open doors to more rewarding opportunities and break the cycle of poverty. I strongly embrace uAspire’s mission and continue to be impressed with the organization’s efforts to assist students to find an affordable path to and through a post-secondary education.
