Why uAspire?

I joined uAspire because my background is much like the students we support. As an ESL, first-generation college student from a low-income background, I understand the vital role guidance and support play in navigating the college financial aid process. I'm a former student from uAspire, so I know firsthand that the mission aligns perfectly with my own experiences and values. They work to help students and their families comprehend the diverse financial aid options available and how to access them. I wanted to be part of an organization that, like uAspire, makes a real impact on the lives of young people, just as they did for me.
