U of Phoenix ad from Arnold tells story of a girl who dreams of being an astronaut

A University of Phoenix ad from Boston ad agency Arnold Worldwide focuses on a girl who wants to be an astronaut.

The ad continues the university’s focus on connecting education with careers. If the voice sounds familiar, that’s because it belongs to actress Phylicia Rashad.

In a statement, JL Martinez, Arnold senior vice president and group creative director, talked about the ad.

“We felt it was important to tell a story that most people can relate to,’’ Martinez said. “If you ask little kids what they want to be when they grow up, they often will say they want to become the president or an astronaut. How can you take a dream that most people will have at some point in their lives and use that to tell the story of the university’s approach to education’’ is one objective of the ad.
