Jessica Jackson

Why are bios the hardest thing in the world to write for me?

I want to sound like I'm the coolest broad you'll ever meet, when the truth is I'm just a slightly less cool female version of my brother.

I grew up in tiny Manitoba gold mining town where I like to believe most of weird traits come from. Really the only thing to do there was fish, swim, Snow Lake Motor Inn on Fridays and Meat Draw at the Legion on Saturday. What a life!

Manitobian at heart, but I've been an official Albertan since 09.
