Recently she has become extremely popular due to her Instagram profile and mostly because of pictures of her butt, that’s the main attraction of most of her pictures.

As far as her education background goes there isn’t much to go on; after finishing high school she went on to enroll into a cosmetology school and took a course on makeup. Jen decided not to attend college because she was of the opinion that college would be a waste of time unless you know exactly what you want to do with it and what you want to become.
