Well, it has been awhile since my last blog, so I was excited when Jeanne known as "Queenie" in the family :) agreed to a blog post! Who is she? She's Stephen and Marie Raiola's daughter (go back and read Stephen and Marie's blogs, too!) and that makes her Janine and Angela's much loved niece!
Jeanne was very nice about answering some questions about herself and her life. Born on September 4, 1991, she is twenty two years old and taking her world by storm!
Born and raised in Brooklyn, Jeanne and her family eventually moved out to Staten Island where she really enjoys the life she has there. She credits her parents with giving her a great childhood and says without the opportunities and support they have given her, she would not be the person she is today.
And speaking of family, Aunt Janine loves Jeanne. Janine says, "Jeanne is a very kind person and great cousin. She took Sonnie to see Justin Beiber. I think she and Sonnie look like sisters. I call her a gypsy. She goes everywhere and has fun. I love my niece. She's enjoyable and fun to be around."
Currently in college, she is studying psychology and hoping to further her education next year by going to nursing school.
But, for fun, she like spending time with her family and friends. She and her family do all kinds of things like going to shows and restaurants or just stay at home spending time together. She adds that while it is sometimes a challenge to have her Aunt Angela on television, she enjoys seeing her on her show and is very happy for her.
And as far as her friends go, she can't say enough good about them (shout out to Stephanie!). They like going to bars, clubs and restaurants. Jeanne also enjoys living with some of her closest friends at college. Here they are:
Jeanne has that special someone in her life, too. She and her boyfriend, Rob, are very happy together and enjoy eating at different restaurants since Rob is what Jeanne calls a "foodie." :) Here's a good picture of Jeanne and Rob:
Aside from spending time with family, friends and Rob, she also enjoys watching Miami Monkey, Real Housewives of New Jersey and Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Jeanne is ambitious and from what I can tell, she will go far. When you combine ambition and the love and backing of a close knit family, you can't go wrong. I wish Jeanne the best of luck with her future!
I want to thank Jeanne for taking the time to talk with me. Follow Jeanne on Twitter @jeeemarieee.
