In case you missed it, we’re teaming up with 19 of the most influential teens to share their inspiring, self-made stories every weekday this month on our IGTV for TigerBeat & Instagram’s 2018 19under19 program!

Today, 16-year-old “Stuck In The Middle” actress and Imagen Award winner Jenna inspires viewers by recounting a time when she felt the pressures of Hollywood and how that turned her into the person she is today. She even reveals that, when she started acting, Jenna made a promise to use her platform to do good and spread positive messages to all her fans and followers!

Be sure to head over to our IGTV to hear the story about how she got bit by the acting bug, talk about the causes she’s passionate about, and more:

“I felt the pressure to be perfect…I thought that I had to know exactly who I was, I had to be completely put together and I had to be perfect…You don’t have to be perfect. It’s a process, it doesn’t happen overnight and I want my audience to know that…that’s something I definitely try to talk about a lot, that journey to self-love.”
