J.Jones (Street Articles Author)

I'm Jerry, a 19 year old college sophomore. I have a passion for anything personal development/self-help related.My passion has led me to casually writing personal development articles for a few online communities and I have recently expanded the audience of my articles by developing a brand new website dedicated to the personal development of young men like myself.

I developed the urge to help people through self development after having personal development books and articles helped me change my life for the better. I feel I have a moral obligation to give back to other's who want to improve their lives, just like the poeple who helped me. I write primarily on confidence and self awareness because I feel that personal developments starts one the inside.

Outside of writing articles I have a number of other passions and hobbies. On campus I am a huge advocate for sexual assault awareness. I am a part of a student organization that educates other students on the prevalence of sexual assualt on college campuses. I'm also looking to pursue a career in pharmacy, as I'm currently a Chemistry major on the pre-pharmacy track.

But I'm by no means all business. I'm an advid hooper and I play basketball religiously. I'm one of the hardest partiers you ever want to meet...it's what gets me through the week. I love meeting new people and I'm an approachable person. Don't hesitate to shoot me a message or email or to connect with me on twitter.

And of course don't hesitate to visit my brand new site!
