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. 
I always laugh about "About" pages because there is no way anyone could learn every detail they need to know about me from one web page. However, here are a few things to get you started:
I create weekly videos over on my YouTube channel for over 55,000 amazing subscribers. My videos range from natural hair tips to college advice videos.
I am a sophomore at the University of Southern California studying journalism 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 have BIG DREAMS. I want to be a successful entrepreneur and make my own coin (*yaaaaas boo*). In my free time, I listen to business podcasts and scour the internet for free knowledge on everything from graphic design to sales funnels. You’ll see me experimenting with new projects over time like building brands, designing merchandise and partnering with amazing companies. Stay patient with me as I discover my future career path during these college years.
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. 
If you have a question for me, please visit my FAQ page. If you have a college admissions question, feel free to head right on over to my college admissions blog
I hope you enjoy and find inspiration in my space for brain dumping and brand building.
