We can’t do what we do without our dedicated team of facilitators. They’re some of the best people around. In today’s spotlight, meet one of our newest teammates, NETTE!
What’s your name?: Nette Angelini
When’s your birthday?: 11/03/1995
Where are you from?: Darien, Illinois
How did you start volunteering with A.B.L.E.?: I started volunteering with ABLE just this spring! So incredibly excited to be a part of this. While I was getting my BFA from Michigan State, I worked with 4th Wall Theatre Company in Michigan, which has a similar mission to A.B.L.E. Their Founder (also named Katie), connected me with A.B.L.E..
What’s your job when you’re not with us?: My job when I'm not here is working at Chicago Line Cruises- an architecture cruise company! But of course I try and find time to audition and be that newly graduated BFA that I am.
What are some of your favorite hobbies?: I love dancing! I take hip hop classes whenever my schedule allows.
Do you have a hidden talent?: I can speak fluent gibberish. Practically pig-latin but it sounds much more ridiculous. I am very proud of this useless talent.
Who is your favorite performer and what do you like about them?: This is so tough! Performer wise, John Mulaney kills it every time for me. I adore his humor. Favorite actor right now.. that always seems to change but I guess my favorite actors right now include Brie Larson and Daniel Kaluuya. But I gotta give a shout out to the queen, Meryl Streep. ALSO I love Dwayne the Rock Johnson. A lot. I practically lead his fan club (see pic- my best friend and I sporting one of many Dwayne shirts)
What would you do if you won a million dollars?: If i had 1 million dollars I would most definitely travel. Then I'd save up, baby!
What’s your go-to dance party song?: My go to dance party song now-a-days is Sunday Morning by Matoma ft. Josie Dunne. What a fun and upbeat tune!
Anything else we should know?: Other than working with A.B.L.E, I'm currently in level 3 of Second City's Conservatory Program. I also have the stellar opportunity of working with Humor for Hope- Using the rules of improvisation, Humor For Hope empowers children and families to cope with the ongoing challenges of trauma, acute, chronic, and terminal illness.
