Well hello! My name is Jalen Gregory. I was born and raised in beautiful Aurora, Colorado and have been singing, dancing, acting, and being over the top since the day I was born. I am a graduate from The Pennsylvania University where I earned my BFA in Acting and a minor in Entrepreneurship and Innovation in the Arts.

I am a storyteller at heart, but I love fusing my craft with my racial activism work as well. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with loved ones and making people laugh. Oh, I also run my own personal photography business! Check out my work here!

all the words I couldn't say

 

Being Black at a predominantly white institution can be tough. There's good days, but mostly bad days, and it is an experience not everyone can conquer. During my time at Penn State I wrote poems documenting the different experiences I faced while attending.

My face is very telling, and this collection is meant to express everything my face said that I wasn't always able to say out loud. It's a poetic journey of my life from fall 2017 to spring 2021. Get ready to experience life in my shoes.
