Why uAspire?

I am passionate about supporting students to make college affordable and possible. Over the past few years, I have worked with students who have experienced many challenges in accessing financial aid, such as filling out the FAFSA or the California Dream Act and finding scholarships. As a first generation college student, I also experienced these challenges. Therefore, I want to be an advocate for students who need guidance in applying for financial aid to help them achieve their dream and goal of attending college.
