Jessica Polanco was born in the Dominican Republic but raised in the Creative Capital (RI). She finds passion in the teachings of life and also enjoys teaching. Writing is her most favorite form of expression where she documents her findings while finding herself through those documents. Her favorite music genre is anything with a good word play and an exquisite beat. She loves fruits and flowers, anything authentic that reminds her that she is one with nature. Ever since she was young she heard a piece of advice to “always be a leader, not a follower” and she has been living that truth until today by creating new trends that inspire one person at a time!
