She is a sophomore from Phoenix, Arizona, majoring in Mass Communications and is active on the Wiley College Volleyball team and the Wiley College Pre-Alumni Council.
“I consider it a huge honor to have been named Miss National UNCF. It means even more for me to represent UNCF, because of the organization’s rich history of helping so many people access college. We continue to have work that needs to be done, in increasing access to higher education for black and brown communities. There are conversations that need to be had and history to be made. I want to thank everyone who supported me. Let us all go forth inspired and be the change we want to see.” Miss Jordan Dansby, Miss National UNCF
Collectively, with financial support from her family, Wiley College alumni, friends of the college, she raised $56,015.15. Her campaign outraised her competitors from other UNCF schools, thus earning her the victory.
