Author. Youth Mentor. Speaker
I'm a USA Today bestselling author, youth mentor and life coach-in-training. Most days you can find me writing out the stories that take over my mind, supporting those around me and creating empowering workshops.
I overcame bullying and went on a journey of self-discovery to become a published author and successful business owner. I aim to be an example to inspire other writers, creatives and teens to be who they want to be. I believe you can be anything you want to be if you put your mind to it.
When I was younger, I remember doing things I regretted just to be cool, following the crowd to fit in and not feeling strong enough to say no and go my own way, but it got to a point when I knew I couldn’t keep living like that. A little voice inside told me that I needed to follow my own path.
At the age of 20 (seven years ago) I started my own successful small business, Jlee, making screen-printed homewares and accessories. I wrote my very first book that went on to become number-one bestseller on Amazon in its first week of release.
My mission is to support you to be true to yourself, express yourself through writing and confidently be unapologetically you.
Life as a teenager is difficult even under the best circumstances. Academic stress, social anxiety, and peer pressure are tough enough, but sometimes those challenges can be so overwhelming that they lead to self-destructive behaviour that can snowball until it can be hard to see a way out of all this heartache.

"I love telling stories about the issues we face featuring strong female characters."
"This story really touched me. There's parts of it that reminded me so much of my teenage years, that I thought Jenna must have been right there with me during my struggles and recovery. This book may not be for everyone, but if it touches just one person and helps just one person than I myself will be a very happy human. If you want an amazing story about the struggles and strength it takes to truly find you... this is the book you need to read. If you know someone struggling, this is the book for them."
