Jessica Mixon (J.Mix) is a New Orleans-based creator that has been privileged to travel internationally with her talents as a performing artist.
Growing up amongst the black community and receiving education in predominantly white institutions, the validity of her blackness was questioned amongst PoC and ignored amongst white peers. Her mental health suffered throughout her childhood due to ancestral and systemic variables that were out of her control, leaving her diagnosed with anxiety, depression, and PTSD in adulthood. In 2018, J.Mix reclaimed her life and finally stood up to those systemic variables that kept her from reaching her fullest potential. Today, she strives to influence persons of every age and background to reclaim their purpose. At the present moment, she is doing this through her podcast (The Self-Aware Millennial), her music, and her ability to make quality time for the person that matters the most... herself.

I would LOVE to solely focus on creating content about normalizing the stigmas behind menstrual periods, alternative lifestyles, female orgasms, and bringing awareness to unresolved childhood traumas, male emotions, and the underrepresented fascination on death and dying. . . BUT when my timelines are saturated with black bodies getting killed, it is hard to focus on anything else... Being repetitively triggered by the circulating pictures and videos has long-term effects on the psyche of a black individual. HOW does a black creative PERSEVERE through this consistent roadblock? Would love to hear your thoughts, opinions, and suggestions. □ . . . . #BlackCreativesMatter #BlackCreatives #BlackLivesMatter #OverSaturated #BlackPodcasts #GeorgeFloyd #BreonnaTaylor #AhmaudArbery #SelfPreservation #Discussion #PoC #TheSelfAwareMillennial #TSAMPodcast #BlackMentalHealthAwareness #SelfAwareness #LetsDiscuss
