Francis Alip is a final year student majoring in biology & psychology with a chemistry minor at Jacksonville University.
He has; served as the president of several prominent organizations on campus, done several types of research, and always made our eyebrows rise from his fashion sense.
He is also a member of the Presidential Leadership Advisory Council and a Student Representative on the Pre-Health Committee on campus.
"In high school, I never had any nice clothes, and I had very low self-esteem. In college, I wanted to reinvent myself so that summer, I worked a lot to save up money to get some clothes.
I'm still trying to expand my boundaries and experiment with new things, but so far, I've come a long way, and it's a wonderful feeling when someone says "you look nice." I genuinely love helping those around me, and I think it's those impacts that live on once you are gone. ~Francis Alip
As I share his week of outfits with you, I hope you get inspired to be a fashion god/goddess wherever you may be.
Week of Outfits: MONDAY
This particular Monday was rainy, and I needed to get comfy.
Tuesday’s are usually my workout days, so I tend to wear;
As a head tutor, Wednesdays are my big tutoring days, and I like to wear button-ups for a touch of professionalism.
As a leader and someone who is quite involved on campus, I wore this outfit to a meeting with Dr. Dean Gover – Senior Vice President, Dean of Students.
On a cold Friday, all you need is a stylish but “comfy” outfit
You might have noticed that most of my outfits are from Abercrombie & Fitch. I like their style, and I appreciate their unbranded clothings because I do not like wearing logos as much. I also love my Vans sneakers, Haha!
From Francis: As I work towards getting accepted at the University of Florida’s Dental School, I don’t want only to develop myself as a person and become a more competitive applicant but also to influence others positively. I also wish to leave an impact on Jacksonville University that lives on even after I’m gone. My parents have sacrificed a lot to bring me where I am today, so I try not to take anything for granted and do my absolute best in all I do.
Before starting dental school, I will be completing JU’s accelerated MBA program to develop myself as a leaser further and to prepare myself to own my private practice one day eventually.
It’s been a pleasure sharing my life & style with you.
