Creator & Founder of Let's Chic Chat
My name is Jocelyn Saunders and I am a Virginia native with a degree in Acting for Film. I moved to California after graduating high school to pursue my acting degree at New York Film Academy. While attending school I started battling anxiety and depression.
During this dark time I realized that my relationship with God wasn't as strong as it should have been. I began talking to one of my ministers at my church back in Virginia for guidance. Those talks with him changed my life! It was during that dark time that I felt so vulnerable and hungry to know God for myself. After, graduating from NYFA I became obsessed with magazines. I would literally buy one every day and read them while talking to my mom waiting for the bus.
The idea came for me to create my own blog but instead make it more relatable to the everyday hardworking women. I feel as though society gives so much attention and focuses solely on those celebrities who have already gained a substantial amount of success and ignore those who have yet to reach that peak, but strive to daily.
I decided I wanted to celebrate women and those who desire to be all they can be. You will see features from various different sucessful entrepreneurs and young bosses on the come up! I will also share A LOT of transparent moments from how I dealt with my anxiety and depression, losing a father at a young age, relationships gone bad, and my relationship with God.
Let’s Chic Chat is growing slowly but surely with supporters in states such as Virginia, California, New York, Florida, North Carolina, Georgia, Maryland, and more. I've also had the pleasure of interviewing people such as celebrity makeup artist Gabriela who has done make-up for reality stars such as Draya and Gloria from VH1’s Basketball Wives and I've done press for the grand opening of the nail salon Kandi Land for celebrity nail artist Kandi Banks and The 7th Annual Manifest Your Destiny Toy Drive & Fundraiser hosted by Hill Harper and Nate Parker.
I have now branched off to having my own Marketing and Branding Consulting business and offering professional makeup services for photo-shoots and fashion shows.
I hope that while on my blog and after reading this about me you feel inspired, motivated, and encouraged!
