Angelle Edwards has always had a lot of responsibility.

The oldest of four, she was the first in the family to go off to college, so failure was not an option.


Coming to the campus of RPI, she was prepared to work hard - but the environment was daunting for the then freshman.

She persevered - pursuing a degree in architecture.

She spent her junior year in Argentina, which gave her a whole different world view and showed her just how strong she was.

This year, just as she believed she would, she earned her degree in architecture from RPI.

Hear more about her journey to this point, and how she's persevering - even despite the fact the pandemic prevented her from walking across the stage, by watching the video of Elaine Houston's story.
