Jen’s not a coward

Jen ur awesome caring person and when you believe in something you get emotional and you show it love you keep being Jen

BluntStyle ,

LET JENN TALK

I really like this show, but one thing that I have a problem with it is how often the men interrupt Jenn when she’s speaking. They don’t interrupt each other nearly as much as they do her. I understand that the speech tempo of this show is quick, but again guys try to be conscious of how often you have the urge to interrupt her point before it’s fully made. Sometimes that makes it hard to listen to. But I really enjoy this teams work and I recommend your show to everyone lol.
