Reporter bio: Fancy Ford


Fancy Ford, a rising junior at Young Women’s Leadership Academy, at the 2022 camp.

Fancy Ford, 16, of Fort Worth, is a rising junior at the Young Women’s Leadership Academy. She hopes to major in business studies at Spelman University in Atlanta. She lives with her mom and  their two dogs, Moo Moo and Lucy. She plays volleyball for her school and in a select league. She said she started playing after her mother signed her up, but over the past seven years she had developed a passion for the sport. She is interested in pursuing the career of an entrepreneur but wants to explore journalism a little bit more as well because she feels it’ll help her prepare her for being around the cameras.
