Not quite a year ago, Youtube star and palm beach native Franchesca Ramsey released and published her first book, the hysterical and sentimental “Well, That Escalated Quickly: Memoirs and Mistakes of an Accidental Activist.” Not only did Franchesca write a hit book, but she also created a viral video that is still popular on social media. Ramsey was a student at Dreyfoos in 2002 and had created and posted the video on youtube in 2003. The video titled “Stuff mean girls say to colored girls” has over 12 million views and hits. She has gradually become a city celebrity and a face many recognize. Franchesca has even been read alongside Nelson Mandela and Michelle Obama! She answered a few questions for the Palm Beach Post about her novel,  the awards, reaction to her book, and whether she’s taking her mother to the ceremony. Ramsey has even addressed how she deals with fame and super expressive fans. “It’s been really cool to hear from people around the world who’ve read my book and shared it with their friends and colleagues. It’s also funny and kind of sad how often my book is mentioned online whenever a celeb makes a public flub. I set out to write a book that hopefully encouraged people to be more thoughtful about how they use the internet and talk to the people they love about the issues that are important to them. So it’s incredibly gratifying anytime someone shares the book or lets me know that my stories have helped shape how they use social media.” All in all, it is very fascinating and inspiring to know that a girl that was once known as just a student, is now mentioned and talked about amongst celebrities.
