We had the good fortune of connecting with Jessica Nicole Brown and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jessica, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
This might sound cheesy, but I feel like it is just something I’m supposed to do. I’ve gone to college for my plan B and have worked other jobs, but music and acting are the only things that feel right to me. I feel free when I do it. Even if I’m not the one making the music; just listening to music is like breathing to me.
Please tell us more about your work. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
I love being 100% honest in my art; showing the ups and the downs. I feel like humans pretty much go through a similar, if not the same, pool of emotions, thoughts, and experiences, but some are afraid to talk about it. But I feel like when people don’t talk about it, someone who could be going through the same thing may start to feel alone because they haven’t heard about other people going through it. I just want to be that person that talks about certain things that other people may be too embarrassed to talk about, and hopefully bring relation and relief.
I am nowhere near where I would like to be in my career nor my life, but I still try to stay thankful because I have still moved up. But even getting to where I am now wasn’t necessarily “easy”, but it still wasn’t the hardest thing someone can go through in life. The entertainment business is full of unknowns and uncertainties, so most of the time you can work really hard but you still just have to be patient. And having patience is not one of my strengths, so I try to occupy my time and mind with other things/interests outside of entertainment.
Lastly, something I would want the world to know is that I plan on bringing the vibes to the outcasts and the loners out there.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
So just a little insight about me; I love chill vibes, music, ice cream, and the water. So if the plans were up to me, hopefully, it would be a beautiful day with comfortable breezes. We would get ice cream, go to the park that was close to the water, and just talk about whatever we could think of.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would love to dedicate my shoutout to my mother. She deserves all the credit in the world. I have no idea who, where, or how I would be if I didn’t have her in my life. My mom is literally a light with a human shell. She is always smiling, laughing, and being optimistic. When I told her I wanted to pursue music and acting, she did all the research you could think of to make sure I had all the resources I may have needed to start on the journey. She always has my back and I will always have hers.
