She was selected among the top 10% of incoming business freshmen to engage in Marshall’s Global Leadership Program, honing her leadership skills and learning world business practices from international executives. On campus, she has held positions in Undergraduate Student Government, Residential Community Council, Black Student Assembly, and Black Business Student Association, all of which have helped her cultivate her love for programming, working alongside a team, and uplifting her peers.
Francesca recently served as a pro-bono strategy consultant to a small Brazilian social business, developing a new business model and marketing campaigns.
