UNION COUNTY
Bon Journo! (hello), my name is Jen M., and I am a sophomore at Downers Grove North. I guess you could interpret me as a typical student in school. I don't achieve outstanding grades , but I have never failed a class.  I listen to every type of music, and really don't have a preference. I live in one of the best cities ever, 'Chicago'. The place where the "King of Chicago" use to live, the one and only Al Capone.  I love to shop, and hang out with my friends.  I can speak a little Italian. I work at a hair salon as a shampoo girl.
 

I would like to thank Lori Harris for all of the information and help that she has given to me over the past few weeks.  She is the reason the site was an immediate success. This is dedicated to  Lori, thank you, once again!
