Francine Sedacy was born on February 23, 1990 to Lindbergh Sedacy and Carla Lovell. Francine is a US citizen by birth, but spent most of her life in Belize. Belize for Francine is home mostly because she has a fervent love for nature. It is where most of her memories were made.
Francine was a Seventh day Adventist by birth and continues to practice that faith. As a child she was very active in church and at age 14 she discovered her talent to sing. By age 19, Francine became very active youth ministry in her local congregation and received respect from the young and the old. She was instrumental in organizing programs, youth retreats, youth camps, and other fundraising events for the ministry. She served in various leadership roles in different departments of the church over her adolescent years as well. She had a passion to serve the Lord and whenever asked to do anything could never find it in her heart to say no and was always prepared.
She was also one that was very ambitious, dedicated and relentless towards her goals. Francine was always at the top of her class and very competitive in educational achievement. She graduated from James Garbutt Seventh Day Adventist Primary school as salutatorian, from Wesley College (her high school) as an honor student in 2007, and also from St. John’s Junior College SLA with honors and an Associate degree in Arts in 2009. After junior college, she was searching for a university and somewhat a ‘right direction’ and during that search she ended up working at Belize Corporate Service for two years and eight months as administrative assistant. She resigned in August 2012 to resume her education at Southwestern Adventist University as a psychology major in efforts to become a marriage/relationship therapist. She believes that her presence at SWAU is a part of God’s direction in her life.
