As a senior at Hoosick Falls High School in 2011, I was honored to be a recipient of the JLS scholarship and privileged to travel down to New York City and meet influential and inspiring people. Ever since I got back on the train to go home to Hoosick Falls, the Foundation has been a major part of my life! As a finalist, I became part of a JLS network that is broad, effective and actively continues to help me in any way possible.
When I was searching for an internship for the 2014 summer, the JLS Foundation connected me with an excellent professional work experience at Starpower in NYC. While an intern at Starpower I was able to gain a solid understanding of the advertising/entertainment industry through the many experiences they gave me both inside and outside the office. The co-founder of Starpower was one of the influential people I met on my first JLS sponsored trip to NYC. I am so grateful and honored that I can be considered a part of the ever growing JLS family that always looks to give back.
