What were your early impressions of ASAP, and how did they change over time?
My early impression of ASAP was good and remained as such throughout my time in the program. From the very beginning I knew the program was going to help me graduate from a two-year college--to later transfer to a four-year college--by providing me with not only financial support but also with the personal support of the different members involved with the program.
What was the most rewarding thing about being an ASAP student?
The most rewarding aspect of having been an ASAP student was graduating in time. If it wasn’t for the support of the program I would have probably taken longer to graduate, but because I always counted on such a lovely group of people I was able to finish a two-year program in a year and a half.
What, in your opinion, makes ASAP unique?
In my opinion what makes ASAP unique is its benefits of early registration and personal academic guidance and support.
Looking back, how do you think that ASAP impacted your life?
I see ASAP as the beginning of my undergrad education. Thanks to ASAP I was able to continue my educational endeavors elsewhere and I am truly thankful for that. I will never forget the wonderful group of people I met in the program. Every fellow classmate and every staff member helped me in one way or another to excel in my education.
What are your career goals and/or future plans?
My long term future plan is to become an entrepreneur and owner of a social event/PR company.
