Before long, people were commenting on her videos and saying how much they loved her sense of humor. Her posts began to go viral and she ended up moving on to other social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. This allowed her to gain a bigger following and eventually expand into other mediums, such as acting.
2. Jessica was recently in the movie ‘We Belong Together,’ where she played the role of Leslie. She got to star opposite Draya Michelle and Ross Fleming. It was an intense film and one that really put her on the map. She proved that she has the acting chops and talent to be in this business for a long time to come. She is grateful for the chance to have been in the movie and loved the opportunity to expand her horizons.
