We sat down with NEON Influencer Jessi Than so you could get to know a little bit more about her!

 

 

How would you describe yourself in 3 words?

Small, Strong & Sensitive.

 

Tell us one thing no one knows about you? 

I have mild OCD which comes with strange habits. Eg, I can’t touch food with my hands unless it’s dry. If I do ever touch food it’s only with my¬†index¬†finger and¬†thumb so I eat everything with a¬†knife and fork. When I use to eat KFC I would eat it with¬†rubber gloves lol

 

How would you describe your style? 

I¬†definitely bounce between glam, sporty and “homeless chic” ūüėČ

 

Who is your favourite Instagram account to follow? 

I love accounts which make me laugh

@textsfrommyex or @depopdrama are always good for a giggle

When it comes to accounts who inspire me, I love

@iluvsarahii and @jessimalay 

 

How did you become a social media influencer? 

It definitely fell into my lap one day lol I honestly downloaded Instagram thinking it was a filter app and I remember I posted the same photo 10 times with a different filter and effect not realising it was a public platform!!

In school I was always obsessed with fashion, I spent all my money on clothes and always loved dressing up whenever I could.

I would just take photos whenever I could and started posting. I guess people really liked my outfit choices!! But I think what really helped me was once I started my fitness journey. I think a lot of girls could relate to the struggles I had growing up and were there with me through my transformation!

 

If you weren’t an influencer, what career would you be in do you think? 

I actually was about to start my career as a Sonographer before I decided to pursue this career path. I always knew I wanted to help people one way or another.

 

If you could only have one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? 

Avocado on toast.

 

What’s the weirdest thing to happen to you?

I was at the Airport in Bali when they had the big earthquake in 2018. Both scary and weird as I have never experienced something like that before!

 

Tell us one thing no one knows about you? 

I’ll give you 2.

  1. Not many people know I have 2 metal rods in my back from a major spinal surgery I had when I was in high school. A lot of people assume I am just short from birth but it had a lot to do with a condition I have called Scoliosis!
  2. Than is not my actual surname ūüėČ

 

If you could have a superpower for the day, what would it be?

Flying, for sure.

 

What TV series are you obsessed with right now? 

I just finished You and do recommend.

 

What/who inspires you?

I am inspired by so many things around me! People and places! I love travelling, especially to countries who are less fortunate than we are. Seeing people who are so kind and happy with a lot less makes me want to work harder but also appreciate all the opportunities that I have been fortunate enough to receive. And also my mum. She had a really tough life and never let it affect her – she made me the woman I am today.

 

What was the last message you sent/received?  

“Are we on today? xx”

 

Who would be your six dinner party guests? 

My partner Jimi, Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Cardi B, Shane Dawson & Ellen Degeneres.

 

Where do you see yourself 12 months from now?

Definitely continuing to create and helping to inspire and encourage girls to be the best they can be. I love helping others fall in love with fitness and accomplish goals that they never thought they could before!
