    Gurls and Gays, How to Find Your Identity Ft. ZAYA

    Gurls and Gays, How to Find Your Identity Ft. ZAYA

    I am beyond exciting to bring to you one of my favorite interviews to date. With the Zaya Show!! We talk about Zaya's coming out story and get educated on pronouns he/him/his, she/her/hers, they/them because I know I'm not the only that gets confused. But there is nothing wrong with asking(: Things are constantly evolving and the important thing is that we evolve too. 

    This weeks topic is discovering you identity! Which is very important. Own who you are and don't be afraid to try and figure out who that is. I feel like we constantly are trying to figure out our identities, like a never ending cycle.  I am here to tell you that it is essential to growth. I love to compare discovering a new identity to remodeling a kitchen. You either gotta rip everything out and start from scratch or you change a few things here and there. Decide if you like your current identity and want to tweak a few things are start from scratch!!! Either way this podcast episode is going to guide you into figuring out who/what that identity is. 

    xoxo Jess

    Vulnerability

    Vulnerability

    In this weeks episode we are talking about vulnerability. If you want people to understand you, or to help you through your struggles you have to be vulnerable. If you want people to relate to you, you need to be vulnerable. The second I started being vulnerable on my social media and my podcast it started gaining tons of traction! The only difference? I became vulnerable and it allowed people to relate. It allowed people to help me. It allowed people to gain enough confidence to share their story. One of my favorite creators I follow (Jenna Jarvis) created a whole company around vulnerability called, Vulnerability is cool. And IM OBSESSED. It's so cool. it's relatable. (Sister if you ever want me to speak at any of your events I VOLUNTEER AS TRIBUTE. 

    Anyway I hope this episodes encourages you to be vulnerable.

    Re-evaluating Your Friendships & Paying Attention to How People Make You Feel

    Re-evaluating Your Friendships & Paying Attention to How People Make You Feel

    This weeks episode is all about friendships in your 20s. How to know when a friendship is no longer serving you. Dealing with unsupportive friends. And when it's appropriate to step away from a friendship. Trust me I have seen it all. My biggest advice is to constantly re-evaluate your friendships and pay attention to HOW PEOPLE MAKE YOU FEEL. This is the tale sign of if you should remain friends or not. Just know that you always have a friend in me(: and in this podcast! This was a super hard episode for me to record and release because its raw and a lot of what I am going through in my life right now. Your 20's are hard. Moving across the country knowing nobody is hard. But this is the type of stuff that forces you to grow into the person you were always meant to be. 

    P.S. I AM POSTING THIS LIVE FROM HURRICANE IAN LMAO. So far so good and I absolutely will have an update for you on next weeks episode.

    Stay safe

    xoxo Jess

    Events In My Life Where I Learned the Most

    Events In My Life Where I Learned the Most

    IF IT AIN'T THE GIRL WHO LASTED 7 DAYS AT HER JOB. Lmao may she Rest In Peace. In this weeks episode we talk about events in my life where I learned the most. Things that also shaped me into the person that I am today. Like the loss of my brother at a young age, and having my heart ripped from my chest by multiple relationship. Here is the thing... I wouldn't have it any other way.  I can confidently say that I would not be the girl I am today without the things I have gone through. Whatever you are going through I promise that you WILL SURVIVE. And you will become stronger because of it. "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger." Literally.

    Growing Up in Utah Feat. Sammy Porras

    Growing Up in Utah Feat. Sammy Porras

    Aww if you are ever curious what it's like to grow up in Utah you have come to the right place. And yes it is much different than other places. No diversity, no sex talk, and everyone goes to church/ serves missions. The goal in Utah is to conform and if you don't conform you end up like us lolol. Just kidding but it was an honor having my former student body president on the pod to discuss what it was like to grow up in a bubble.
