Jessica Hamilton thrived as a Star Scholar at Malcolm X College. After graduating from Truman Middle College high school, she focused on finance at City Colleges of Chicago. While at Malcolm X, Jessica took advantage of the tutoring offered, receiving help with her homework and assistance preparing for exams. She believes the Star program provided a valuable and necessary foundation for completing a four-year degree. In her words the Star Scholarship gave her “the chance (she) never thought she’d get.”
Jessica was accepted into six universities to continue her education: UIC, Robert Morris, Roosevelt, Loyola, DePaul, and Northern Illinois University. She plans to enroll at either DePaul or Loyola in Fall 2017.
