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.

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.

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.
