Jacquelene Hollier-Jackson’s professional goal is to run a Fortune 500 company.
But until that time, she finds ways that will best prepare her to lead — in business, clubs, athletics and more.
Hollier-Jackson’s an orientation leader who introduces incoming freshmen and transfer students to campus. And she’s been active in the university’s Talent Gateway — a unique UM-Dearborn initiative that empowers students to drive their own development — earning the (M)Talent distinction.
A natural when it comes to entrepreneurship, Hollier-Jackson has run her own jewelry business since elementary school. She is active in the Black Student Business Association, where she was elected president, and helped put together the first College of Business Women Entrepreneurship Week (WEW), where she served as a moderator for the WEW panel.
Out in the community, Hollier-Jackson is on the board of directors for the Future Project, a national nonprofit youth-focused organization. Hollier-Jackson — the 2018 UM-Dearborn Homecoming Queen — also coaches cheerleading at an elementary school in Detroit.
“I want to be someone that my little cousins and people everywhere look up to and see that they can dream as big as they want and work hard to achieve their dreams,” she said. “My goal is to have something to pass on to the next generation, but also to be proud of the accomplishments that I have made.”
