(Djlilbofap) Tell Me about yourself?
(JiaNicole) My name is Jia Nicole Manning, I'm 23, I'm currently a working student/ aspiring songwriter. I've always been creative, and interested in the arts. I'm studying recording arts and show production at FIRST institute & although I'm not where I want to be yet, I am making my way towards my goals. I'm very patient and genuinely friendly. I keep an open mind and accept all walks of life.
(Djlilbofap) Where were you born? What city and County you reppin?
(JiaNicole) Orlando, Fl born & raised!
(Djlilbofap) how did you come up with the song Don't touch my hair?
(JiaNicole) It is a cover of a Solange song that came off of her recent album "A Seat At The Table". It turned into a remix because I learned that my friend Lematic doesn't sing, so he did his verse and I feel like it really gave the song more flavor.
(DjLilbofap) I see all you Photos are in Black & White is there a reason?
(JiaNicole) I've always been attracted to black and white themes. The absence of color kind of reflects my personality. You can see me for what I am in the light on the surface but then there are the shadowy areas that people can't always figure out.
(Djlilbofap)What are your achievements to this date?
(JiaNicole) In life my first big achievement was graduating high school. From there, I started off at a traditional two year community college in Tampa where I maintained my grades and worked my way through school. I did not graduate from Hillsborough Community College but while I was there, I landed a job as Resident Assistant, and a job at Vision Works. Being an RA felt like an achievement because I was honestly, and proudly, the best RA. Also, getting a job at Vision Works at the young age of 19 was very empowering. Since then, I received a promotion at cold stone, and was recently employee of the month (last month) at my current job.
