Camila is a College Affordability Advisor on the New York Succeed team. Her main priority is to support college students with accessing and keeping their financial aid throughout their time in college. Before arriving at uAspire, she moved to Queens, New York from Miami, Florida and was working at Queens Community House in a similar role as a College Access Counselor. Camila's path to a degree started off at Miami Dade Community College and continued at Hampshire College. She then graduated with a bachelor's degree in Sociology and Women's and Gender Studies from Florida International University.

Why uAspire?

I believe that everyone who has a desire to attend college should have access to do so. Because of the complexity of Financial Aid, I know there are a lot of people that miss out on this opportunity. I chose uAspire because I want to be part of an organization that is putting in the work to educate counselors, support students, and advocate for change.
