There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time.

Jemier Jenkins

It’s been said that you can't do anything about the length of your life, but you can do something about its width and depth.  As a talented actor, model, writer, personal trainer and entrepreneur, Jemier Jenkins is a force to be reckoned with.

Jemier was raised in St. Petersburg Florida.

During her senior year in high school she wrote, directed, and stared in her first play entitled “Church.”  With overwhelming support from her classmates, teachers, and friends the performance was a success.  A seed was planted.  

After graduation, Jemier attended Florida State University where she earned her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Communication with an emphasis in Media Production.   While studying British documentary abroad in Europe, the seed planted in high school was watered at a Les Miserables show in London.  Her life was immediately changed; she instantly knew where she belonged.  The Stage.

Upon graduating, she then relocated home to Saint Petersburg, Florida where her entrepreneurial spirit, fueled by her passion for youth and the arts, lead her to start Nsoromma, a nonprofit organization focused on teaching youth the disciplines of performing arts while providing a platform for them to hone their craft.

Jemier’s desire to sharpen her own craft and pursue her dreams of acting inspired her to relocate to New York City in May of 2010.  She graduated from the prestigious William Esper Acting Conservatory and is currently continuing her education at Syracuse University.  Today Jemier continues to focus on developing her skills and abilities through various acting opportunities and classes.  

She has recently been cast in The Onion News Network, Sex Love Relationships, & Sometimes Love, Where are all the Good Black men, Love Questionmark, Mars & Venus: Equilibrium, and Emi Trilogy.
