Jordan Johnson (AKA @jakobejay on Instagram/TikTok) dreamed of doing make-up. Now, he wants to be the face of multiple brands and spearhead the representation he wishes he could have had growing up.
Serena Puang, a journalist with deep roots in the state, leads this feature series that explores the stories of individuals who break through the simplistic stereotypes often linked to Arkansas.
Each piece in “The Real A with Serena” is a testament to the state’s varied population and a rebuttal to the outdated idea that Arkansas is a dull and uniform place. Serena introduces us to a spectrum of personalities, from innovators to trailblazers, all of whom add depth and color to the narrative of Arkansas.
