We had the good fortune of connecting with Jahlil Swan and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jahlil, what’s the most important lesson your business/career has taught you?
The most important lesson my career has taught me is that being patient will always get you places stress free. What I mean by that is if you spend your time worrying if things will go right or wrong.. or if they will happen at all then you are waisting precious time in your life to be doing something else. Sometimes you have to let things go and just be patient and wait on it for it to circle back to you at the right moment.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
So I’ve been in the fashion modeling world for about 5 years now I’ve seen a lot and experienced even more. To me Fashion is more than just clothing, it’s your personality being worn on the outside!! Getting dressed and creating looks is a very peaceful- stress reliever for me because I can just let my creative side go crazy haha I’m never afraid to wear something that might have people staring at you all day it’s just my personality..

I got to where I am today by having an amazing support system & having a strong headed mindset that I will receive everything that is meant for me and I will go everywhere I am meant to go. With that mindset I am never let down or disappointed in much because I already programmed myself to believe if it doesn’t work out it just wasn’t gods plan for me.

I’ve learned to never shut out that little voice in your head that is telling you it wants/needs something, that is your intuition telling you the truth.

I want the world to know that no matter where you come from you have the potential to become anything you put your mind to do not let other people opinions effect the way you think about yourself.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Some of my favorite spots to visit in Los Angeles is: Santa Monica pier, k2 speed go-karting, Monty’s Vegan Burgers, Century City Mall & Hiking above the Hollywood sign it’s such an amazing view!!
