Meet Fran, Best Buddies Ambassador & TV Spokesperson


Fran Sheinberg, Best Buddies Global Ambassador

The accolades and the opportunities are piling up for Fran Sheinberg. At the Best Buddies Leadership Conference in July, she was honored as the Best Buddies Jobs Employee of the Year. Her work at the Promise Child Development Center in Texas was cited for her commitment, passion and work ethic that has made an indelible impression with her community.

Fran is on the autism spectrum. She stated, when she was young, doctors and teachers told her parents, she was "different, slow and delayed." With little outside encouragement, Fran was determined to prove everyone wrong. Although, she had difficulty communicating with people, Fran found an outlet. She started to write and perform raps. With this new ability to express herself, she found a way to share her feelings and put a smile on people's faces. Her stage name is Flava Fran.
