Why uAspire?

I chose uAspire not only because it is a great position, but it gives me the opportunity to contribute to my passion on having a true impact on Boston youth. Having been in the same shoes of those I seek to help, the Financial Aid Advisor position allows me to become a positive role model, and help with students' transition to college.
