Why uAspire?

My personal experience as a first-generation college graduate drives my belief that every student deserves a post-secondary education regardless of their background, grades, or family situation. I was served by uAspire in high school and took full advantage of its resources and it has helped me obtain a higher education through an affordable pathway. I hope to pay it forward to the students that I will impact through this work.
