Meet Jenn Blosil

Vienna born, Utah raised, Jenn Blosil became something of a sensation across America and globally with her stunning performances as a finalist on American Idol Season XV.

A few months later, gold medalist Laurie Hernandez and her partner danced for the win to Jenn's "We Are the Ones" on Dancing with the Stars.

If you were to ask Jenn what her "why" is, the answer is simple: to create beauty and bring goodness to the world. Jenn is an advocate for using social media to strengthen relationships, promote and focus on the good in the world (there's lots of it!) and to add joy to the lives of those that are reached.
