About ACES Aspire
ACES Aspire is a platform for aspirational youth of colour express themselves and gain valuable work experience. We are a group of individuals who are frustrated about our communities being misrepresented in the media. We channelled our ‘aggression’ into something positive and came up with ACES Aspire; an online magazine entirely produced by students. Have you ever been frustrated by the adults in your life not understanding you? Do you want to go into the media industry? Do you want to make your voice heard and have a positive impact on society? You can do all of that and more at ACES Aspire! Parents and teachers can also learn from this website by gaining insight into students’ minds.
All of our content is produced by people in the BAME community so the articles are infused with personal experiences and feelings. Our goal is to help break the cycle of underachievement and inspire young people to achieve great things by showing them examples of people their age going against the odds and rising above prejudice.
This is a chance to make new connections that will last a lifetime and impress any future employers or universities with this unique volunteer experience.
