Success

“I truly feel amazed at how much my mentality has changed since attending LaGuardia through the ASAP program. I had always considered myself a poor student before college, but because of ASAP, I was able to prove to myself that with the proper support, I too can succeed in school.” 

~ Akiko Hamagishi

“The help that ASAP gave me is something that I truly am gratefully for. Not only is this a great program, it also is the best way to network on the whole LaGuardia campus. I am sure that every past, present and future ASAP student will agree with me that ASAP is a life changing program that gives so much and expects so little in return.” 

~ Rayad Aziz

“The ASAP program at LaGuardia had allowed me to continue my education at no costs. As a student I felt this was one of the greatest opportunities I would be offered in life and if I didn’t take advantage of it then, it wouldn’t come to me again.”

“I could not describe by wording how I thank for ASAP gave me the opportunity let me become part of it, and both of us really did make it happen.”

“My ASAP advisors helped teach me to be on time for meetings, class and other events. They also motivated me to interact with others because you never know who the next person to give you a helping hand in life will be. The story of my life is still being written. Hopefully, when you read my story, although there may not be a conclusion yet, it will help you write yours.”

“I went from just wanting to get a career to wanting to go to a four year and then to wanting to go to a more challenging school to wanting more than a Bachelors. It all started with ASAP.”

“I studied hard and obtained my Associate's degree with Honors. I have something valuable. It is called the foundation of an education. It is not ephemeral, it is continuing. It will buy many shiny metro cards, and, someday, a shiny automobile.” 

~ Roderick Wells

“Nothing can compare to the advisors and how supportive and loving they are. They not only help you as a student- ways to get involved but they find the means for you to achieve your goals and further your education.”
