I chose to work at uAspire because I really resonated with its mission of supporting students throughout the financial aid process. As a first generation college student and student of color, I know firsthand that navigating the financial aid system is always stressful, and can feel really overwhelming and isolating. Hopefully in this role, I am able to show students that their concerns are being heard and that they aren't alone in this process. I hope to serve students to the best of my abilities, to make sure that this aspect of their college life is one less stressor they have to think about. In the process, I also hope to create lasting relationships with the students I work with so that they know that I am a resource they can always turn to.
