JENN IM... CLOTHES ENCOUNTERS
We're spending this edition Blogger Hot Minute with the one and only Jenn Im of Clothes Encounters. This vlogger has conquered YouTube with her channel filled with fashion and lifestyle advice that's simply unparalleled. Since first meeting Jenn, we knew she was a powerful, stylish force with an infectious smile, and we've watched her reach a level of cool we didn't even know was possible. We're fortunate enough to know Jenn on a personal level and want to show a little more of the girl we love so much with an intimate video interview. See a whole other side of Jenn and love her like never before.
Describe your personality (style, vlog, life) in three words.
Is this happening?!
How has vlogging changed your life the most? Anything completely unexpected?
Never in my life did I think that I'd be able to make a career out of doing something I found as a hobby. I've always been passionate about styling and self-expression, so it's unbelievable to me that I'm able to support myself and live comfortably doing something I love.
Aside from vlogging, do you have any other dream jobs?
When I was younger I wanted to be a cartoonist. I would doodle on any loose paper and all around my notes in class. In elementary school, I remember drawing really intense and customized versions of Neopets and trading them for Flaming Hot Cheetos or Lays.
Do you have a celebrity crush?
Edward Furlong circa 1998.
Do you prefer short or long hair?
I prefer the length I have now: mid-length. It's short enough so it doesn't cover my outfit, but long enough so I can still have it in a pony tail!
Any exotic places you'd want to visit?
Anything you've been listening to recently? Favorite bands?
I go through a lot of quick phases with music, which is something I've always done in my life. Right now it's a wide range of artists from DJ Mustard to Dolomite Minor. The shuffle option on Spotify has been keeping my mind stimulated and happy when I'm on the road or traveling.
How is life out of school? Have any (general or fashion) advice or pointers for students?
It's hard to believe that I only graduated from college one year ago. Time seems to pass unusually fast now. I think it's because I don't have any scheduled vacations or breaks. Even if I'm out of the country and I'm supposed to be "relaxing," the duties from my channel always loom over my head because there's always something to work on or brainstorm. It's hard to know when to stop. I'm working on trying to find time to unplug and disconnect from my job completely. I think it'll be good for me in the long run. I'm terrified of burning out.
