(SISS)  Hi Jessica, where are you from and where are you currently spending your time?  (Jessica Shirley)  Hi there I was born in St. Lucia. I grew up in California and I now reside in Brooklyn New York.  (SISS)  What was one of the hardest things that you had to go through? What advice would you give someone going through the same struggle?  (Jessica Shirley)  Well, growing up I went through lots of difficult experiences, and hardship. What I tell someone going through any type of struggle is that, it will get better. Although you may not see it immediately, this experience will make you stronger.  You can draw you own map of what you want your life to look like. Draw it and keep looking at it so you can remember where you are coming from and where you want to go. (SISS) Actress (IMDb) | Fitness | #SISS Tell us more… who is @jessallthetime and what are you most proud of?  (Jessica Shirley)  I am really an introvert @jessallthetime is maybe my alter ego. I have always wanted to be an actress, but life happens and reality hits so I put it off for a long time. I went to school got my masters degrees (minored in theater) got a job...I guess  I did it backwards. I established myself before  deciding to pursue the dream. This works for me because I don’t have the stress and pressure of the struggling actor. Any stress or pressure I have, I place on myself, which I tend to do.  (SISS)  Finish this sentence, I have a dream… ?  (Jessica Shirley)  I have a Jessica Shirleydream to become a working actor.  (SISS)  What makes you the happiest?
