“Every day I see people overcome adversity, I see strength and courage, I see determination and love. It’s such an incredible feeling to be surrounded by such caring people, to be part of something so important to our community.
Working for UCS has taught me so many things in such a short amount of time. I couldn’t possibly list everything, so I’ll share what I feel is the most important lesson I’ve learned.
We all have struggles, limitations, and insecurities. I’ve always known this, but for much of my life I saw these flaws as weaknesses. It didn’t take long after starting at UCS to realize how wrong I was. The consumers I work with have given me an incredible gift; the ability to embrace those things within myself and in others. I’ve learned that our own limitations make us who we are, they make us stronger, and perhaps they are the most human things about us. We are all flawed, and in some strange way I think that makes us perfect.
Working at UCS has truly shaped my outlook on life in the most positive of ways. It’s been a beautiful and humbling experience, one that I feel lucky and privileged to have had thus far.”
