WTB: How does it feel to be apart of the Netflix series Family Reunion?

Jordyn: I absolutely love it, I have always wanted siblings and now I have them. I am so excited to have more adventures with my set family for season two!

WTB: If you could be apart of another Netflix show, which one would it be?

Jordyn: I would love to be a part of She Ra’s team to kick some bad guy butt.

WTB: You are modeling, acting, writing songs, and stories. Which one gives you the most joy?

Jordyn: They are all fun, but acting has allowed me to meet so many new people.

WTB: What are some advice Lorretta Devine, Tia Mowry, and Julia Roberts have given you?

Jordyn: Mrs. Tia and Mrs. Lorretta helped me stand in the right position for the different cameras which is called blocking. Family Reunion is a Multicam (multiple camera) show and you don’t want your back to any of them. Unfortunately, Mrs. Roberts was not in the same scene as me and I didn’t get to meet her, even though we are on the screen at the same time #tvmagic.

WTB: You are also passionate about helping the homeless epidemic in Los Angeles. How can we and our viewers help you out?

Jordyn: So far I have only made sandwiches and donated clothing, but I just learned about this website called LA HOP (Los Angles Homeless Outreach Portal) it lets you connect a homeless person with LA outreach services. You just fill out the form with their location, description of the person and submit, your form is assigned to an outreach team whose goal it is to move people from homelessness to housing.
