Why uAspire?

While in college I had every intention of going into the Speech-Language Pathology field, but through my intensive community volunteer work and internships I found that my goals have changed. I realized that my true passion was empowering underrepresented students achieve success and have access to all resources. I know first hand how important having someone there as a guide and support system is for a student's future. I am glad to be part of an organization that does just that.
