It was Jessies first day at a new place, a new beginning, Taylors University. Many have told Jessie about the spoiled rich kids with bad aYtudes that Taylors had. Regardless, she went for her first lecture with an open mind, where she met 3 other girls and was later placed in the same group with them.
