“I was scared to go to college because I was scared that I was going to be discriminated against. I knew that I could not get federal money to help me. When I participated in Summer Bridge, it was an amazing experience that shaped both me as a person and also my world. The USP program connected me with helpful counselors that cared about my well being. And I was so grateful that there were students who were like me. USP itself gave me hope that I am not going to go through this college journey alone. Without this program, I would not be at the level of academic excellence and personal well-being I am today. The USP program has always and will always be there for me.”
