Why uAspire?

My experience attending an under-resourced public school in Buffalo, NY means that I know all too well the financial barriers to completing college. I am so passionate about this organization because I believe uAspire achieves a meaningful impact for students like my high school peers every day. It is an honor to work alongside uAspire's dedicated staff to help put more students on an affordable path through college.
