Hi, I’m Jayden (pictured left with mentor Vanessa). I am 17 years old and was born and raised in the East Bay. I am currently attending Emery High School. Raised in a single parent household, creating a business was always my passion. Whether that be making comic books at age 8 or animations at age 10. I was blessed enough to have a mom who put me in multiple programs as a child to help me find my interest. As of now I am passionate about public speaking, software creation, and activism. I take advantage of the many programs and opportunities around me like The Hidden Genius Project, Energy Convertors, and Youth Impact Hub.

These last few years I have been working on my company, a social media management company targeted towards the growth of small businesses. Small businesses are able to connect their social media accounts to iBlinkco to receive feedback. I created this company to use something I am interested in, social media, to help people in my community. The recent success of my business such being featured on KPIX Channel 5 news has fueled me to develop my business even more. I am in the process of forming a complete vision on what I want the world to be and how I can uplift my community as much as possible. I believe in radical social entrepreneurship. I believe my product can tackle a problem and fix it while remaining profitable. On this journey, I want to expand my knowledge and create something more valuable than anything else, a legacy.
