Growing Up in Front of 2.6 Million People with DIY YouTuber and Rising Artist Jennifer Zhang
Jennifer Zhang (@jenerationdiy) is well-known on YouTube for her DIY craft videos and extreme room makeovers, and as JEN Z on Spotify for her dark yet dance-y bops. Jennifer is a 22-year-old YouTube Creator and singer/songwriter with a YouTube following of 2.6 million.
