Joelle

    Contributor (Jedi News)

    Force for Change Spotlight girl Joelle discovered Star Wars when she was 6 years old, after being encouraged to watch "Attack of the Clones" by her friends, who told her that her sister looked like Natalie Portman.

    Since then, Joelle has gone on to watch all of the space saga's offerings, including a modest 7 sittings to see "The Force Awakens" at the cinema. She has even interviewed Executive Producer of “Star Wars Rebels”, Dave Filoni for a national news outlet.

    Having fallen in love with “A New Hope's” scene on the Death Star, where Han and Luke change back into their clothes with Stormtrooper belts on hip, Joelle has since flaunted many fashion looks, incorporating her very own TK belt.

    Finding her love for singing at a young age, Joelle developed a distinctive vocal sound. Combining this love for music and Star Wars with her various charitable initiatives, she has created her own project for Force for Change. Joelle is soon to be seen performing an original charity record "Skoobie Dootle", in a music video showing her parading around New York, whilst wearing her Stormtrooper belt. All proceeds from downloads of the track will be donated directly to Lucasfilm's charitable movement.

    In 2014 Joelle became a Young Person's Ambassador for the UK's leading alopecia charity, Alopecia UK, having lost all of her hair when she was 8. Appearing on national TV and radio and being covered by press around the world, Joelle is no stranger to the public eye.
