Fresh Face: J. West

J.West is a 23-year-old rapper from Warsaw, IN. He has always had a passion for hip-hop music, though it wasn't until he graduated high school that he put that passion to action when he released his first project (My Life EP) in September of 2014. Shortly after its release West started working on a second project Destination Famous (Released in March of 2017) throughout that time West decided to take his music to a higher level by moving from a small town in Indiana to the city of Chicago, and since then has been on the rise!

Mission/goals: My mission is to bring hope/change to people through my music and my life experiences. As well as just have a good time doing what I love.

My Best Failure: My best failure would have to be worrying about what others think. From that, I learned that if you live for other peoples happiness/approval you'll never be satisfied with yourself and that makes it hard to move forward.

What do I offer that many others don't: A very organic passion for the craft. 

What I would change about the industry: I think I would the way label contracts work. Currently, they are extremely complex and they hold you for a long time.

Inspirations: My inspiration is seeing someone who is just starting off really pushing to get where they want whether it be in music or business and so on... It also really inspires me when people tell me how my music has impacted them and they stop to take a photo with me. That just recently started happening but it's still awesome to see your passion being recognized.

If you have ever listened to my music, followed me on social media, came to a show, even if you intend to do any of that I truly appreciate you to the utmost!

About Me

  Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! I'm Calynn, 18x Award Winning businesswoman, media personality and former pageant queen (Miss United States Universe Tourism 2021, Miss World America Nation 2020). I started this blog when I was barely 15 years old in January 2011 as a supplement to my application to the retail business internship at the downtown Chicago Nordstrom mall! I stayed there for 3 years learning the fundamentals of everything fashion business from sales and marketing to media and modeling. This was a phenomenal foundation to my career as it gave me the rudimentary knowledge and competitive edge that I needed to be successful!  From there, I went on to college and obtained my first degree in Business and Humanities (the arts and social sciences). I wrote as a freelance journalist and editor for several large publications and hosted live cable television for two years. I walked countless red carpets being a VIP media guest at major industry events all over the country

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Hey Guys! Thanks for checking in! I hope you've been well :) Do I have quite the update for you all! I know, I know. My failure to regularly post on my old faithful blog has gotten out of control. I used to post at least monthly, however, for the past couple of years I can only find the time to write you all two or three times a year. I want to thank you all for the continued support and readership from the bottom of my heart. Even reviewing my blog stats to see that this blog still receives 50-70K+ reads a year, even with my minimal posting makes me so happy. This post will discuss various events, endeavors and adventures that I've been getting into for the last several months so stay tuned to peep my highlights.
