Meet Jenny King

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jenny King.

Jenny, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I am originally from Atlanta, GA and grew up in a loving household. I was teased as a child in school for being overweight and those experiences caused me to develop a poor self-image and severe low self-esteem. Over the years, I invested tremendously in myself, focusing on personal growth and development, which has helped me to become the woman I am today. I have always loved to help people. And as I grew older, I realized just how much others struggled with the same or similar body shamming and esteem issues that I dealt with growing up. Then I thought, what better way to make a difference in the world than to share my story in hopes of helping others overcome. I have always had a passion for creative arts and public speaking and started out at an early age speaking mostly to women and youth. As a result, I now use my creativity and oratory skills to spread a much-needed message of self-love, wholeness and personal growth for men and women alike.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has not been a smooth ride for me along the way, nor should we always expect things to go perfectly. Life happens and it’s in how we choose to respond that matters most. About 12 years ago, I embarked upon an incredible journey of self-discovery and in that exploration, I have discovered the gems to overcoming obstacles and maintaining a positive outlook in life come what may. I have struggled with comparison, lack, low self-esteem, poor self-image, negative thinking and the list goes on. But I’ve since learned that true resilience comes when you commit fully to personal growth and development.

Please tell us more about your work, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite memory from childhood would have to be my 11th birthday slumber party. We ordered all my favorites, including pizza! And I was allowed to invite a few of my closest friends over. I remember we laughed all night while lip-synching to some of En Vogue’s greatest hits like ‘Hold On’ ‘Free Your Mind’, ‘My Lovin’ ‘Yesterday’ and more!
