Joleesa, a first-generation college student and a native of The Palmetto State. She comes to us from Irmo, SC.  She has a strong passion for education and college access. Joleesa enjoys working with and motivating college students to strive to be the best person/student they can be. She encourages the students she encounters to always be D.O.E.Rs (Dream & act, Overcome obstacles, Enhance relationships & self-confidence, and Reach for their success). In her free time you can find Joleesa curled up with a good book, spending time with family and friends, and shopping. 

Joleesa's life's motto is: "If I can help at least one person along my journey, then my living shall not be in vain."
