Ashia graduated from Achievement First Hartford High School and is now attending Tufts University.
“Tufts has been amazing so far! The transition from high school has not been as bad as I thought it would be, but I’m pretty sure that’s because of the summer program I did and the support I receive from back home. I’ve been able to keep up with my classes while also being on Concert Board, the Caribbean Dance Team, and BLAST. Of course, every now and then I struggle with balancing my schoolwork and my social life, but I’m getting better at it. I do love the challenges that college brings because it’s such a different world and lifestyle compared to what I was used to. I’m excited to continue this journey and see what Clinical Psychology has in store for me next.”
