Meet Jenn

Jenn’s talk was memorable AF. She spoke from the perspective of a Black female designer who lived and worked overseas in Asia for several years.

The format for her talk was super witty and fun, just like Jenn is IRL. During the making of this talk she was waking up for us in the US at early/late hours to connect with us. During the creation of her talk, she actually moved back to the U.S., after 3+ years in Tokyo. Talk about transitions! I loved laughing along as she told us how she got job, (or not), during the course of her courageous career.
