Hello, I am Jordan Jones, a 17 year old I’m from Mississippi, I love writing and bringing value to people. Writing is how I inspire and motivate. I believe that each individual has something within him or her whether it is knowledge, experience or a skill. It could be kindness—that someone else can benefit from. That person could be in their community or at the opposite side of the globe. In order to broaden my impact I have decided to create an Medium page  (where you can follow me at :Jordan Jones)  to promote my writings. I also publish daily diverse content to engage with my audience. Regarding the writings I have created a Medium profile which I also use as a platform to showcase my work, I have been publishing since November 2017 and since then my Instagram and my Medium accounts have significantly grown. If you allow me, I would like you to check out what I’ve been doing so far, it would mean a lot to me.

Dwayne Wolfe. Just another 20 something from the five boroughs in constant search for creative venues. If this were the 1300’s you’d call him a Renaissance man, but in 2017 you can just call him a jack of all trades, master of enough. Singer/Writer/Musician/Photographer and student of life. Currently studying Political Science and Africana Studies at the State University of New York at Albany, Dwayne is tunnel visioning his way to a career in law to add a little more color to the U.S legal system and aid in restructuring the ways in which the law affects African Americans. The task seems daunting but Dwayne is fully committed.
