Joi Wade

Hey, Guys! It's Joi Wade Here.

Welcome to! Here’s where you can read my blog posts, watch my youtube videos, buy my book and merch and learn more about my life. 
Here are a few things you should know about me:
I create weekly videos over on my YouTube channel for over 67,000 amazing subscribers. I create videos on natural hair, college advice, fashion, travel and of course my life!
I am a sophomore at the University of Southern California studying public relations on a full academic scholarship. 
After my own success with applying to college, I realized that I loved helping high school students get acceptances and scholarships to university. I do most of my college admissions help over at my college admissions blog. I started the blog in 2016 after writing my first book, "You Got Into Where?: How I Received Admission and Scholarships to the Nation’s Top Universities.”
I take every chance available to me to travel, whether it is a study abroad, family trip or personal pursuit. So far I have visited: Italy, France, England, Panama, Brazil, Jamaica, Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Caribbean Islands (St. Thomas, St. Kitts, St. Maarten, St. Lucia), and various cities in the US.
I've had the opportunity to work with some amazing people and companies. A few include: Herschel Supply Co., Skechers, As I Am Naturally, Curls, Deva Curl + many more.
Before you exit this page — Follow me on social media! I am active on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, and YouTube. You’ll be able to follow my day to day as a student at USC, my summer internships (last summer I was at ELLE Magazine!), and behind the scenes to all the chaos that is my life.

I hope you enjoy and find inspiration in my space for brain dumping and brand building.
