Ebony: from corner to career

At 16, Ebony dropped out of high school. With little support and pressure from those around her, Ebony found herself gang involved. She spent years running the streets until a family friend introduced her to Uncornered. “I was told I’d never succeed at anything. Being a part of Uncornered gave me the push I needed to get back on track and to finish college.”

“Today I’m a graduate with a career thanks to the support and belief from my advisors .” 

In 2018 Ebony received her credential in Automotive from Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology. Today she has an internship with Mercedes and is working towards her next degree. She was recently featured in the NFL’s My Cause My Cleats campaign with Devin McCourty sporting customized Uncornered cleats that Ebony designed.
