Jeanelle Angeles’ sunny personality will make it easy for almost anyone to carry a genuine conversation with her, even if you’ve just met for the first time.
The 20-year-old Iskolar ng Bayan's cheerful disposition also translates into action—Jeanelle also has a heart for helping people. She took up Occupational Therapy (OT) as her course in college, a field which she is deeply and genuinely passionate about. “Occupational Therapy for me is such an immensely beautiful profession,” Jeanelle says. “It’s beautiful because occupational therapists (OTs) highly empower clients to change their own lives through hope and therapy—to live, and not just to be alive.”
As a Candy Rookie, Jeanelle hopes to use her platform and influence to spread her advocacy.
Jeanelle is part of Candy Rookies 2020, a group of influential and aspirational college students handpicked to represent #GenerationCandy in the year to come.
