Jessica graduated from University of North Florida two years ago and currently works as an HR Coordinator/Recruiter for a staffing firm.
What are you doing when you’re not working? “I have a five month old, so I’m very busy at home with the baby. Aside from that, I’m really involved in church. I’m really big on family, so whenever I can be with my family, I’m with them. I’m trying to learn how to cook. I’m not a really good cook. I have a son who likes to eat, so I figure I need to know how to cook.”
What advice would you give to your younger self? “Not to rush the seasons of life. Enjoy everything… the good times and the bad times. Enjoy it because it only lasts for a moment. Recently I had a good friend of mine from college that passed away. So I just look back and, oh my goodness, like those moments, you know, we didn’t realize that we were cherishing those moments. You really have to enjoy every season of life because tomorrow’s not promised.”
What would you do if you received a million dollars? “Well, of course I would try to give back to the community. I would put up some so for me to live the rest of my life so I don’t have to work everyday. I’d probably invest the rest of it.”
How would your friends describe you? “Oh, extremely outgoing, the life of the party, loud… I’m really loud. My voice carries.”
Thank you Jessica for lighting up my day and for being part of my project.
Technical Notes: It was a clear day and we had soft, even light where we were located on the sidewalk.
