After working in Higher Education, Jessica Orenstein joined the Jed Foundation, which empowers teens and young adults with the skills and support to grow into healthy, thriving adults. She chats with Dr. Alfiee about growing up with "grit", and feeling additional pressure to succeed as a woman of color. Jessica grew up in the suburb of Belleville, Illinois and completed both her B.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders, and M.S. in Public Health – Behavioral Science and Health Education, at Saint Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri.
