Student Spotlight

Francesca Shaw

Francesca Shaw is a senior Women’s Leadership major with a minor in Psychology from Charleston, SC. As a student at Clemson University, she is a member of Sister 2 Sister where she serves on the executive board as Cultural Enrichment chair, and she will also be serving as President of A.Bevy Collegiate Group Sector 7 this upcoming school year. Francesca came to Clemson as a transfer student. She studied Mathematics at Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, GA before realizing that it was not her passion. She then moved back home to Charleston, attended cosmetology school, and became a licensed cosmetologist. After working in the beauty industry for a year, she decided it was time to finish complete her college career and found the Women’s Leadership program at Clemson. In December 2019, Francesca will be a Clemson University graduate. She plans to use her degree, along with her beauty industry background, to help young women who struggle with mental illness by opening a salon that caters to non-traditional therapy.
