"Ever since I enrolled in ASAP, school has not been a sacrifice anymore but a privilege and an investment. ASAP has provided me with the balance of finance, support and guidance.  This opportunity has opened many doors. Being part of the program has given me the clarity as to where I am going, how I will get there, when and why I want to get there.  I feel that I am accomplishing my life’s ambitions along with my academic goals."
