In 2017, Allison Chicoma graduated with a Bachelor of Journalism and Media Studies from Rutgers University on a full 4-year scholarship. After working at Hasbro and Proctor and Gamble for 3 years, in 2021 she joined Zenith, a large international, specialty communications company as a Supervisor of Content and Digital.
Allison attended Mary Help of Christians Academy (MHCA) while living with her mother and older sister in Paterson. She greatly appreciates the education her school provided.
Just as important for Allison was the support provided by the Tri-County Scholarship Fund to help her gain values that will last a lifetime.
“I’m very thankful for all the teachers in my life, my sister, and my mom,” said Allison, “and I especially want to say thank you to Tri-County. Without your help I wouldn’t have been able to attend private school and to be fully prepared for the next steppingstone in my life, college. I’m very lucky.”
