"Without the support of the ASAP program at BCC it would have been very difficult for me to be where I am in my educational journey. My positive experience in the ASAP program has been one of the deciding factors in my career choice; it has helped me to develop into a competent, mature person, capable of dealing with the many challenges that I am likely to encounter in my life journey."
