Jessenia IngramJessenia Ingram, a theater and performance major, has a passion for the arts and the positive representation of Black women in media. After graduation, she will work at Atlanta's Alliance Theatre as a Spelman Fellow/. Her  ultimate goal is to be an EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony) winner -- a coveted honor that only a handful of individuals have earned. 

A native of Plano, Texas, Ingram chose to attend Spelman because of its overwhelming sense of sisterhood, and also because of her strong desire to be in an environment catered to Black women. Ingram served as the vice president of the Spriggs-Burroughs Drama and Dance Ensemble as well as the Glee Club. She is a member of Phi Beta Kappa, a Women of Excellence Leadership Scholar, and the co-arts and letters chair for the Eta Kappa Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, Sorority Incorporated.

Ingram played the lead role in Synchronicity Theatre's popular musical "Heidi," and "Bob Marley's Three Little Birds," written by the late reggae legend's eldest daughter, Cedella.
