Meet Our Ambassadors 

Zoe Reese

"As a student at UCCC, I learned to value diversity, a lesson that continues to serve me well to this day. UCCC is a diverse, welcoming place that celebrates differences and teaches children to love themselves and others. As a result, I learned to love the qualities that make us unique and treat people as individuals. I am better prepared to talk with and listen to people with different ideas, thoughts, and perspectives. I have better social skills and can build trusting relationships with others. These are all foundational skills that you not only learn early in life, but will also help you become a productive citizen. Your contribution to UCCC today is about leaving a legacy that lasts a lifetime."

Nasia Metcalfe

"Like every child at UCCC, I was nurtured by loving teachers and experienced, amazing early childhood programming. But, little did I know that UCCC was going to great lengths behind the scenes to support my future. My mom has Sickle Cell Anemia and like UCCC, she wanted me to have the best education possible. Financially, she could not do it alone, but with support from UCCC’s tuition assistance program, I was able to stay enrolled. Every child deserves high quality care and your contribution to UCCC’s tuition
assistance program will support the dreams and aspirations of children like me."



Jasmyn Mitchell

"I often wonder what my community would look like if every child had the same opportunity that I did. When I was younger, I was prone to seizures, a terrible experience for a toddler, especially one that was away from her mother. Nevertheless, the teachers at UCCC embraced me, kept me safe, and were steadfast in their support. With UCCC’s help, these challenging moments made me stronger and reinforced my commitment to UCCC. So far, five children in my family have attended UCCC because we believe that the school makes us all stronger; as individuals, as a family, and a community. Together, we ask that you commit to UCCC by contributing to the tuition assistance program."
