Share your story

Current and prospective Upward Bound students often need motivation.  Getting to college is hard, as most of you know, and everyone needs a helping hand.  If you are interested in sharing your story, we are always happy to pass them onto students.  Whether you were able to achieve your goal or not, everyone's story has value to what we are trying to do - help students value hard work, aim high, and never give up.  It hasn't been that long since you were in the shoes of a high school student.  Take time to give back and pass along some advise.  Contact Lisa Yang and share what you have learned since graduating high school.
