Jennifer Vassel is the author and founder of “I Am Unique!” – a children’s book series and self-love brand aimed to inspire girls and women to rise above their insecurities and share their unique gifts with the world.
Jennifer’s interest in entrepreneurship piqued when she heard a life-changing sermon on New Year’s Eve 2012. In 2014, she published her debut book entitled, “My Channeled Energy” – a collection of poems and short stories written over a span of 20 years. It became an Amazon #1 Bestseller in two categories. Her main focus now is building the I Am Unique! brand.
