“When I learned I was eligible for NJ STARS, I gave Bergen Community College a chance and it provided me more opportunities than I could have ever imagined. Knowing I had the financial backing of NJ STARS, I was able to focus my energy on my academics and student involvement, explore my career options, and apply to colleges and scholarships upon graduation; all of which allowed me to earn my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree debt-free,” said Natasha Piñeiros.
