Think Francesca is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Erin Reilly
They're my mentor  •  Creative Director & Research Fellow, University of Southern California.
Francesca is brilliant! She is a future thinker who can see possibilities that many others cannot, especially when it comes to the future of ... media and entertainment. She is ambitious and has the drive to get any project she sets her mind on, done. I would work with her on any project as she adds value to all teams she's a part of.
Cynthia Wang
They're my friends  •  Annenberg Graduate Fellow, University of Southern California. Previously Manager, Health Workforce Programs, COPE Health Solutions.
She does excellent work, is open-minded and generous with teammates, takes control of a situation when needed, but isn't afraid to let other ... s steer the ship for a bit. She's incredibly supportive of the people in her life (and by extension, her teammates), and cares deeply not only about them, but also their ability to excel in their passions in life. Additionally, she is incredibly knowledgeable about whichever field on which she focuses, and if she doesn't know something, she will try to find out about it. She's an incredibly intelligent individual, a fantastic communicator, a hard worker, and a great friend. An entrepreneur should not only possess the technical knowledge by which to run their company, but also the interpersonal skills to bring together talented folks to help them realize their vision. Francesca exemplifies both of these crucial elements of being an awesome entrepreneur.

Cynthia Wang
They're my school  •  Annenberg Graduate Fellow, University of Southern California. Previously Manager, Health Workforce Programs, COPE Health Solutions.
Cynthia evinces a powerful mixture of value-driven dedication, considered insight, and efficient pragmatism. I've seen and heard of her work ... in a number of contexts, from the entertainment and health care industries to academia, but her breadth of interests should not be mistaken for flightiness; on the contrary, Cynthia has the capacity to keep a level head and accomplish whatever task she has before her. Between her intellect, her passionate beliefs, her refined communication skills, and her genuine warmth, she is someone I'm lucky to call both a colleague and a friend.
