Why uAspire?

I chose to work with uAspire because I know how difficult the financial aid process can be. As a first generation college student I have had the first hand experience navigating the process on my own and want to be a guiding hand for others. The mission at uAspire is important to me and I believe everyone deserves the opportunity to attend college.
