“I was not going to give up, so I applied aggressiveness and went for it.”
Ashlye was a student of KCC’s Project Rise in 2014. She entered the program having already completed the requisite credits for high school completion at the Bronx Aerospace Academy, but was denied a diploma on a technicality. While she had a passion for a job in the aviation industry, she knew that in order to support herself and her daughter, she would need to change her immediate career prospects.
Upon attending an information session, program administrators, Norma D’Arancio and Victoria Bershtat, urged her to enroll telling her that she had the skills to rapidly excel in the program. The commute was long but knowing that “the further I had to [travel] to get an education, the more I’d want it.” This momentum began the moment she started.

Earlier this year, CCP was highlighted by Tom Hilliard at the Center for an Urban Future as a program that needs to be “scaled up” and have a “deeper coordination with city workforce, education and youth development agencies” to continue providing these much-needed services. At KCC, our Culinary Arts graduates have been led to greatsuccess even after leaving CCP.
