Why uAspire?

How can we afford to not be doing student-centered work? I feel extremely passionate about educational equity and addressing the tremendous disparities in our public school system. I believe some of these disparities can be addressed through community-based support networks and action-oriented one-on-one advising that centers the stories and needs of all young people.
