25 Facts About Me!

Jenna Lynn Photography 

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share a little bit more about who I am. I’ll start doing these 25 Fact posts as I share new fashion posts. Some of these things you may have already known about me and some of things you may have not. I hope you enjoy learning 25 facts about me!
1.       I am a first generation Filipino-American. My parents immigrated to the US in the 70s and 80s.
2.       I was born in Los Angeles, CA.
3.       I grew up in the Pacific Northwest. It’s not as gloomy as everyone thinks I swear. It’s actually a very beautiful place.
4.       I’m petite… I’m actually 5 feet tall and I can still get away with shopping in the kids section. I like to think that I’m actually much taller than 5 feet – or at least my personality is.
5.       I’m bilingual. I speak English and Tagalog – I can also understand the gist of conversations in Spanish because tagalog has many Spanish words in the language.
6.       The craziest thing I’ve done to my body is get a mid-cartilage piercing on my right ear. I got it when I turned 21. I know I’m a wild woman.
7.       I love to read. Some of my favorite books are Gone Girl (this book was crazy), The Fault in Our Stars (I bawled), and I also really liked the 50 Shades of Grey series.
8.       When I was a child I wanted to be an author and a fashion designer. And today I’m a blogger so I feel like I still pursued both of those interests.
9.       Aside from blogging, I work for the Boeing Company as a business analyst/project manager.
10.   Prior to project management, I worked in Finance for Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner program.
11.   And before Boeing, I worked for PepsiCo in sales. I lived in Southern California for this job.
12.   One of my favorite life experiences was planning and co-organizing TEDxUofW – University of Washington’s TEDx independently organized conference. I ran the sponsorship, registration, and volunteer management committees. It’s one of my first positions managing and organizing a team.
13.   I want the most out of life and I plan on living it to its fullest.
14.   I used to play the clarinet in middle school.
15.   I want my MBA. I can see myself as a future executive.
16.   I love public speaking. I love writing speeches, poetry, blog posts, etc.
17.   I ran track, cross country, and did gymnastics in high school.
18.   When I went to college, I learned how to partner stunt with the UW Cheer team.
19.   I want to get more into blogging and expand into other realms – maybe travel, food, and lifestyle?
20.   I love ice cream like Joe Biden.
21.   I love my girl Beyonce. I would love to in her circle of friends sigh. Maybe one day.
22.   When I’m feeling sad, I look at puppy pictures. When I’m happy, I look at puppy pictures.
23.   My first job ever: I was a Ride Operator for Wild Waves theme park. I operated the Kiddie Coaster and the Frog Hopper. Lol.
24.   My favorite podcasts lately: The Lady Gang (Hi Keltie, Jac, and Becca!), Modern Love, and Stuff You Should Know.
