Jenn McAllister, better known as JennxPenn to her fans and the Internet, is one of the reasons that it's now cool to be geeky and a girl. The wildly fun, energetic 18 year old has gained notoriety over the last 6 years on YouTube and successfully translated her following into working with tier-1 brands like Brandy Melville, Old Navy and Mattel. Last year, she served as the official Social Correspondent of Goldfish at the 2014 Jingle Ball, was a 2014 Teen Choice Award nominee, and hosted a national tour for musician, Tyler Ward. She understands her power and believes in utilizing this strength towards educating and rallying her fans for good.
