College Advice for the Competitive Edge


As the daughter of immigrant, working-class parents and a first generation college graduate, I know from personal experience how a college education can change your life. For this reason, I volunteer weekly in the College Counseling Center of Gorton High School as part of the Yonkers Partners in Education (YPIE) program. YPIE is a private, non-profit local education fund that helps students in Yonkers, New York set high academic goals and strive for a better future through access to college and career opportunities.
