Agustinas vision is to cultivate a diverse body of college students who are willing to reach out to low-income middle schools and high schools throughout NYC. Her objective is to increase the number of diverse students entering college. It is important to have mentors talking to young people about going to college in order for them to become comfortable with the idea of applying. Aguustina believes that it is important for college students to give back to the youth in their communities so that they may have similar opportunities.
