The UA helped me get involved in my community. It provided the essential building blocks for leadership positions I took on in college that I continue to this day.

The Urban Assembly is like family to me. They have been with me since day one, rooting for my success. Because of the Urban Assembly, I will be the first person in my family to graduate college. I am forever grateful to all their time and dedication they provided me on this journey.

Attending a UA school allowed me to overcome those barriers that my socio-economic struggles destined upon me. I was fortunate to be exposed to colleges, hear from alums and be part of empowering programs.
