Franny Baronian was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and continues to reside there. She has been in school (both community college and university) studying English with a concentration in literature since 2017 and wanted to be a teacher. But when the COVID-19 pandemic hit all that changed, she felt compelled to change career paths. There she found non-profit work and she found the EdFund through AmeriCorps VISTA. Her goal for the future is to get a masters in English literature, continue non profit work and publish that romantic comedy novel she’s been writing since March 2023.
