Women’s HERstory Month by Babco: Advisor Advice by Francine Coker

Francine Coker from University of Miami (Associate Director, Student Activities and Student Organizations) shares Advisor Advice for Women’s HERstory Month 2024.

Francine’s perspective on who inspires her most, and why: 

My mother is the strongest and bravest woman I know. She motivates me to aim high and persevere in the face of adversity. I can’t thank her enough for moving to the United States so that I may live a better life.

Francine’s advice to share with students and peers that are seeking to be in leadership positions on their campus.

As women in general, we will experience several challenges, but how we choose to respond to those challenges will help shape and mold us as individuals. Don’t let other people’s opinions stop you from achieving your ambitions. Their opinions do not pay your expenses; nevertheless, your talent and love for your work does.
