Introducing Jessenia Mills, a singer-songwriter, actress, and photographer from a small town in Spring Hope, North Carolina. The young woman comes from a multifaceted line of singers, so the talent surely lives on in her blood.
Jessenia is very talented in a number of ways, as we found out. Not only does she sing and act, but she has been dancing since she was just 3 years old while her mother sang her ’90s albums.
The more we talked to Jessenia, the more we wanted to learn about her!
You probably don’t want to mess with a girl like Jessenia considering that her father also taught her Taekwondo and she used to call herself ‘a singing killer dancer’.
He wrote his first song ‘Speak’ when he turned 13; a song that was based on the novel ‘Speak’ that he read in class.
The feedback he received after releasing ‘Speak’ was so overwhelming and motivating that he couldn’t wait to produce more of his own music.
For Jessenia, however, the road was not always easy.
After graduating from school and actively seeking to pursue a career in acting and music, things got a lot more difficult.
He quickly learned that pursuing these kinds of dreams was not easy at all.
With many setbacks, like having to work in order to pursue her dreams, Jessenia learned that doing both was taking up too much time.
So Jessenia made the decision to go back to living with her parents and really give her passion a fair fighting chance.
She prides herself on showing people what a true role model should look like and the sacrifices that sometimes have to be made to fulfill your dreams.
