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!

Living My Best Life Tour: Studying At Harvard, Winning Awards and Walking The Runway!

  Hello all! Thank you so much for returning to my blog and reading this post. I have so much to tell you all because the last few months have been CRAZY! I'm not even sure where to start. I guess I'll begin with the awards that I have been so blessed to receive within the last two weeks. I have NEVER in my entire career of almost a decade managed to take home five awards in such a small time frame! I received two Virtual Visionary awards for Entrepreneurship & Community Service, two awards given by the Sara Williams Scholarship Fund with proceeds benefitting research at St. Jude Children's Hospital, and a Service Leadership award from the pageant system that I represent as their current Miss World, the Miss & Mrs. America Nation Organization ! It was so much fun to have the honor of strutting the runway at their Nationals Fashion Show a couple of weeks ago alongside my amazing sister queens! Prior to this, I hadn't modeled in a fashion show since I was a Fashio

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

Living My Best Life Tour: Chicago Fashion Week 2021 + BTW, I Have A New Pageant Title

It's been a while! Throughout my relentless grind to meet my goals for 2021, I haven't had the time to blog on my OG website, Fashion Thunderclap. However, I have a few very cool things to share with my beloved readers here that prompted me to MAKE TIME and publish a long-overdue article here. The main thing I want to discuss today is how AMAZING my experience was at Chicago Fashion Week 2021 presented by Fashion Bar ! I was so happy to be invited as a media guest for the 5th year in a row! My love and gratitude goes out to the organization and its Founder, the esteemed Tony Long for always extending the invitation and producing some of the best fashion shows around! As you can see in the photos, I have on a new sash. I was crowned Miss USA Universe Tourism 2021 in January and have pledged to do as I did in my reign as Miss World America Nation and make a difference, big or small, in all seven continents of the world, especially supporting those in line with my platform of
