STAR STUDENTS

Angellic Ross

Angellic Ross is a 19 year old alumna of Rufus King High School. She currently attends Northwestern University where she in enrolled in the Performance Studies program. This summer she is a part of Earn & Learn’s Private Sector Job Connection Program as the Summer Communications Intern with GE Healthcare. She also participated in Earn & Learn’s Community Work Experience Program last summer. This is what she has to say about her experience:

“Last summer, I worked with the organization Lead2Change, Inc.; a youth-led non-profit that provides grants for youth-led community service projects. Our main task for the summer was to plan the DreamBig! event where we give out two $5,000 grants. From my job, I learned how to successfully organize a big event and how to work in a team. My work with Lead2Change throughout high school and with Earn & Learn has been key in helping me choose a career and my activities in college. It’s one of the reasons why I became Service Chair of the African-American Freshmen Activities Board. Like my work in Lead2Change, it allowed me to plan service events for Northwestern freshmen. Not only did I gain lifelong skills (which now help me in my role at GE), it increased my passion to serve my community.”
