My name is Jessica Francois. I’m a Senior at the University of Alabama majoring in Human Development and Family Studies. I am excited to say that I will be graduating this coming August. Originally, I’m from Tampa, Florida. I’ve really enjoyed living in Alabama for a number of reasons, but I have to say that be able to experience four seasons (not just hot, hot, hotter, and hot and humid) has been lovely. When I graduate, I plan on pursuing a career in children’s mental health until I am able to achieve a Master’s Degree in social work.
I come from a huge family. My parents are divorced and have been remarried since. In total, I have 8 brothers and sisters (blood, step, and half). I am fourth youngest. I loved growing up in such a large family, but it definitely wasn’t peaches and cream all of the time. Let’s just say that certain events and experiences influenced me to pursue a career in mental health.
I have a dog named Addie. She’s a beautiful, three year old black lab. She’s my main interest and hobby, always keeping me on my toes. I have a wonderful, loving boyfriend who also keeps me on my toes. The two of them are so in love with each other. It’s adorable. I’m very blessed to have both of them.
