As a student who greatly benefits from financial aid, I understand that the process to receive aid can feel stressful at times. My personal financial aid journey has been filled with moments of confusion whether it be from terminology or requirements. It was hard to navigate the world of financial aid as a Latina from a low-income family. However, I am grateful to the Office of Financial Aid staff who helped me understand the ins and outs of my financial aid package, on numerous occasions, so that I can attend Amherst without financial burden.
I am so excited about my future work as a Financial Aid Peer Ambassador because I want to help students navigate financial aid and give back to our community! Our mission is to be a financial aid resource for all students on campus so please feel free to drop by office hours or reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
