The Impact

Francesca Simone
Three jobs, five college courses, a huge family, a binge-watching addiction, a deep-rooted passion for Halloween, a never-ending hunger for literally every edible thing in sight (bottomless pit, for sure), a massive movie collection, an obsession with Disney, an infatuation with horror, a need for constant dancing and great music, a black cat named Banshee, and an imagination that runs wild all the while (yes, you can breathe now). Francesca is fueled by the serendipitous moments that life surprises us with every once in a blue moon.

Francesca obtained her associate degree in journalism in 2019 and is due to graduate with her bachelor's degree in journalism in 2021. She's passionate about editing and creative writing.

She writes a column titled: To Be Perfectly Frank
