Hi Jenna it is a pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy. Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
Hi, well I’m originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I lived there for most of my life but I just recently moved to Los Angeles to pursue my acting and modeling career! I am an only child, and I know what you’re thinking, “Wow that’s awesome, you must love it”, but when I was a kid I got so bored you have no idea.
Which is the best compliment you have received?
Honestly I have two. The best compliments I ever received came from two people, my aunt Bern and my Mother. My mom said to me one day, “You are so strong and you are my hero, I couldn’t have done half the stuff you have accomplished at your age, you are so brave.” That really spoke to me, especially since it came from your mother, because I’m usually the one that looks up to her, she’s such a hard working, amazing, selfless woman. Hearing her say that about me, meant the world.
My aunt Bern, man if you met her you would love her instantly. She is such a joy to the world and she really makes you proud to be who you are. She said to me “I brag about you all the time because Jen, you are just such an amazing person, you’re such an old soul and you came in my life at the right time. You’re drive, you’re love and care for people is amazing, and I love you just the way you are”. My aunt and I have gotten so close, I consider her my second mom. It’s amazing the amount of love I have in my family.
How is your beauty regime like to looking so fantastic?
Honestly I wake up and wash my face, do my hair, and look in my closet at all the nice outfits I have, then I’ll go into my dresser and pull out sweatpants and probably a t-shirt. If you see me out in public I’m probably wearing sweatpants. I only wear jeans or something nice if I’m going out to an event or with a group of friends.
I usually will put on some makeup. My favorite products honestly come from Elf , Sephora , and Nyx . I love doing my makeup with a sassy song playing in the background so I can feel on top of the world, kid you not. If you’re going to go out and slay, you got to have a song playing that fits that mood.
What is your proudest achievement so far?
Well I was in college for a semester, and I didn’t like it at all. I went through a really, really rough patch there and I just knew I needed to get out. The worst part was, I come from a family of scholars, and family who all for the most part went to college, and graduated. I didn’t want to let anyone down honestly because I was the next to attend college so I did, but not for myself, for my family to make them proud. When I was in college, acting was drifting away from me, and when I would come home from college for a weekend, I never wanted to go back because it was hell for me.
I finally made the decision to leave college and follow my dreams to pursue my acting and modeling career, and honestly at first, no one in my family was okay with it and they weren’t happy. I knew I just had to prove myself to them, so in April of 2017 I moved to California, and once they knew I was moving everyone was happy, but also concerned, but I went and by far it’s the best decision I’ve made. I’ve done so much career wise and I couldn’t be more proud of myself than I am now.
Do you have any hobbies?
I really like to play volleyball, I love playing it. I love getting together with friends and have a game on the beach or something. Also I love to paint, even though I’m not a great painter, I love painting pictures, it’s so calming and relaxing.
If you could have a super power, what will it be?
Hmmm mind reading, because you go into an audition and they’ll say “Wow you did great” but are they lying? Hahah you never know! So I would definitely want that.
How long do you think you’ll survive a zombie apocalypse?
Honestly I think I would survive a good month, mainly because I saw a lot of zombie movies and they all look like they’re dying from food, and I love food, so I give it about a month.
What turns you off on a date?
Hmm, honestly guys bragging, or talking about all the stuff they’ve done, not even in a tasteful way, because if you brag in a tasteful way, that’s fine, but when they do it because they think they’ll win you over, absolutely not. So not attractive. Also when they chew with their mouth open, I can’t, so disgusting.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Jenna. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexy to me is being comfortable in your own skin 🙂
