Really Professional Internet Person by Jenn McAllister Review
For some, the internet can be a scary place, filled with unknown danger. Yet those who know how to use it responsibly and practice safe
uses of that same internet can utilize this incredible tool can realize their dreams. There is something so refreshing about reading the
story of a young woman who overcame great struggles to see their dreams come true. This is where we come in with this memoir, Really Professional
Internet Person by Jenn McAllister.
This is the voice of the young YouTube generation, and yet it feels like a familiar story that a lot of teenagers go through. Struggles with
bullying, with family problems, and with finding their voice in the world. For those who don’t know her, Jenn McAllister is known by her
channel name on YouTube, jennxpenn. Amassing over 2 million subscribers on her channel, this young woman has already been on several tours,
starred in her first feature film, Bad Night, and now has written her first book. Her unique brand of dry humor has made her a staple in
the YouTube community, and this book serves as not only a memoir, but as her guide to YouTube success that has helped her over the years.
Now granted, she does a great job of stating that everyone is different, and no single guide is the right path for everyone searching to find
their voice on YouTube.
The writing in this book is fresh, mature and identifies with people of all ages. You can feel the emotions she felt pouring off the page,
and her genuine love for her craft and her appreciation to her audience are evident in every page. You will find yourself rooting for her
from the very start of the book, and without giving away any important developments in the memoir, her story and the messages she conveys
are not merely important, but rather integral to overcoming the struggle of not only school, but of life in general. It’s a message of
hardship, but it’s also a story of hope, and how hard work and determining what you are passionate about can set you on your own unique path
that only you can travel.
Overall this was a fantastic memoir. It’s been very reassuring to see these young stars utilizing their status with their fans to not only
tell their story, but to get the generations to come to pick up a book, and appreciate the written word. The future looks bright for Jenn
McAllister, and I highly recommend you pick up a copy of this book now!
