During her four years at Alexandria City High School, Miracle Gross has gone above and beyond to be involved in the school community. From being in the National Honors Society to running her own small business, there is not much that she hasn’t done! Now, Gross is getting ready to graduate and will be continuing her studies at Hampton University. Also known as, “the Black Ivy League and my home by the Sea,” as said by Gross. 

Even in her freshman year, Gross always found a way to shine throughout ACHS. “After dancing for 10 years, in 9th grade, I decided to try out for cheer. I made JV and held the title of captain for the entire year,” she said. Gross was a part of the varsity cheer team her sophomore, junior, and senior year. During the basketball season of her senior year, she decided to become a cheer manager. 

Gross participates in a variety of school activities. She is the President of the Black Student Union and Student Government Association, was a finalist for DECA, and is a part of the National English Honors Society. 

Outside of school, Gross loves talking to people in public. “I think this is a great way to network and challenge myself with my social skills,” said Gross, adding, “Aside from that, I love writing. I like Netflix documentaries, reality shows about love, and crime series. I like to get dressed up and take pictures. I like to drive without a destination in mind just to explore. I love to shop. I love spending time with my family. Recently I’ve gained a love for reading and makeup. I really love trying new things!” 

“I love creating things. I run two small businesses where all I do is create for others! (or as my alter ego Mimi the CEO of MiracleKreations would say, I KREATE.) People bring me ideas and I bring them to life” said Gross. 

Gross runs her own small business called Ethnically Empowered. “Ethnically Empowered is a home decor brand that is committed to displaying pro-Blackness through ornamentation, “ she shares on her website. Her other small business, MiracleKreations, focuses more on handmade jewelry and other custom “Kreations” ranging from custom graduation caps to custom tote bags.

Gross shared words of advice for underclassmen, “If there was anything I could say, it would be, to be the change that you want to see. I know you’ve heard it before, and it sounds cliche, but I mean that. As former President Barak Obama said, ‘Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.’ So, if you want to see change and you’re passionate about it, go for it. Take a position and stand on it. Be fearless in the pursuit that sets your soul on fire. My second biggest piece of advice would be to surround yourself with people who encourage you and who want to see you win!” said Gross. 

“My final piece of advice (for now), would be to stand up against injustice. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Everyone has to stand up for someone. If not, there will be no one to stand up for anyone.” said Gross. Throughout her four years at ACHS, Gross has done a lot to create a name for herself and will continue to make a difference in the world.
