2014-15 BU Volunteer
From Newport News, Virginia, Chloe Chabanon-Hicks was adopted by her grandparents as her biological parents were consistently in and out of the prison system. In the face of adversity, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology and Cognitive Science with a concentration in Neuroscience from University of Virginia 2014 and matriculated to Barry University in Hollywood, Florida, where she is currently working on a Master’s Degree in Biomedical Science; she plans to apply to medical school next year. Chloe has worked with E-SToPP through the PPLM program since 2014 with the passion for the troubled youth as she has a younger brother who has traveled through the school-to-prison pipeline. Her belief in the potential of the incarcerated youth is reinforced with every weekly visit to JDC in Miami. As a future physician, she believes in helping our future achieve their goals while using their past experiences as wisdom to guide their future endeavors.
