Eboné Marie Jimerson catwalks to the beat of her own drum! Although she is a suburban native, she is a city-girl at heart. Eboné recently graduated from Hatboro-Horsham High School with distinguished honors. She is proud to attend New York University in the fall. Eboné will be pursuing a double-major in political science and broadcast journalism, with aspirations of becoming a White House correspondent and ultimately become the female face of CNN.
Eboné has a passion for speaking on behalf of worthy causes. This year Eboné created her own, local television show, featuring fashionable clothing for affordable prices. Eboné's inspiration for the show is to make those who are less fortunate look and feel as beautiful as they are on the inside. When Eboné is not filming, editing, or shopping for her show, she enjoys track and field, family traveling, youth church service, modeling, "mirror" dancing, participating in many school clubs and telling stories.
Eboné's main social cause, breast cancer, has heavily impacted her life and taken three immediate family members. Besides spending years, supporting her family while they fight the disease, Eboné is an active advocate for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and a frequent volunteer for cancer patients at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Eboné and her mother are the last surviving founders of "Sisters4Sisters", their own non-profit organization established to mentor and support cancer victims, survivors, and young women. Eboné also volunteers with Katye's Helping Hands, H.E.L.P. Philadelphia, Philabundance, and JRA Jewish Relief Agency.
