One of the most asked questions I get asked on Instagram are related to the Jadelynn Brooke Ambassador program. I love answering them so please feel free to keep the questions coming but I also wanted to put together a blog post recapping my experience with the program. I have officially graduated from high school which means I have “graduated” from the program but I will be applying for the college program in the fall!
I first heard of Jadelynn Brooke my sophomore year of high school and started following them on Instagram (this is before my blog or blog Instagram) and shortly after finding the company I learned that they had an ambassador program. At this time I had no clue what an ambassador program was and honestly, I didn’t have much of an interest in applying. But at this time I found myself starting to follow tons of bloggers on Instagram and I loved seeing all their photos. Some of these bloggers ended up inspiring me to start a second Instagram at the beginning of my junior year. As I started to post more and more on my new Instagram account I found my small JLB collection growing pretty quickly and their items quickly became some of my favorites! When the spring applications were released for 2017 I knew that I wanted to apply to the program for a couple reasons, I genuinely loved the company and wanted to be apart in it any way that I could and I had so many opportunities to learn about social media and photography! I knew I would have the ability to be as creative as I wanted and I would be able to share the amazing JLB company with family, friends, and all my new social media friends!
I filled out my application and a few short weeks later I got the acceptance email. I was ecstatic! I had never done anything like this before and to be 100% honest, at the time I was super frustrated with my high school (senioritis hit early for me…) and I just really wanted something new! After receiving the acceptance email other reps (new and returning) started to contact me and some of those girls as now some of my best friends! I loved being able to look forward to photo shoots each weekend!
I had the privilege of continuing as a rep as well as a mentor for 2 more semesters and this program has definitely been the highlight of my high school years! I met girls who had similar interests as myself, had hundreds of fun photo shoots, and totally stepped out of my comfort zone with this social media “thing”. I am so grateful for this opportunity and can’t recommend the program enough to anyone interested in applying! I honestly don’t know if I would have started this blog if I had never been in this program because the girls who I have met are so incredibly talented and inspired me to take my Instagram to a whole new level! I have always loved photography but with this program I found a whole new love for blogging/social media and I probably wouldn’t have experienced without it.
From being a rep to a mentor and being able to help new reps love this program as much as I do, I am sad to say I am no longer a high school rep but I can’t wait to apply for the college program in the fall! I get DMs all the time from people asking me how they can get accepted to the program because they want free clothes, and my response is always that if you are applying to get free stuff you are applying for all the wrong reasons. The experiences and friendships were what kept me coming back each semester and I am so grateful I did!
I also want to give the entire JLB team a huge thank you for everything you have done for me the past three semesters! I never would have imagined that I would be doing what I am doing now and I absolutely love it!
When I started writing this blog post I reached out to my Instagram followers to see what questions y’all had about the program so here are all my answers/opinions!
What does Jadelynn Brooke look for in a rep?
The girls at Jadelynn Brooke looks for tons of different types of girls who embody the Jadelynn Brooke brand and who are just as HAPPY and excited about the brand as the JLB girls themselves!
Do you need to own Jadelynn Brooke products to apply?
This is one of the most asked questions and although you don’t have to be an active customer to apply and be accepted I personally feel like if you are going to promote something on your social media you should be a fan of the brand, which normally means being a customer. However, if you don’t own any JLB don’t be discouraged! I highly recommend sharing your love and passion for the brand on social media even if you don’t have any JLB gear!
What is the process of applying like?
In order to apply to be a JLB ambassador you have to fill out a pretty simply application. You will answer questions about your school, your hobbies/interests, extracurricular activities, and why you think you would be a good rep. In your application talk about YOU! I know it can be weird telling someone all your accomplishments and activities because you don’t want to brag but when working on your application don’t be afraid to list your accomplishments! You should be proud of everything you have done!
What is your favorite part about being a rep?
My favorite part about being a rep is definitely all the people that I have met! I have met so many amazing girls through the program who live all across the country and it has been so fun! Being able to talk to girls from North Carolina, Texas, Pennsylvania, Florida, even girls living in South Carolina close to where I live! It is so nice knowing that I always have someone just a phone call away if I need them!
Are you more likely to be selected if you are a previous rep than a new applicant?
I wouldn’t say so… I think that everyone has an equal chance during the application process!
Does follower count play a big goal?
From what I have seen, follower count does not play a big role. Make sure you are interacting with your followers frequently and that you are a JLB lover! I also recommend making your account public, at least just through the application process so that Jadelynn Brooke can see your posts!
I hope you found this post helpful if you are wanting to apply to the High School Ambassador Program! I am so excited to finally be publishing this post! If you have any questions that I didn’t answer in this post or you just want to chat about the program please feel free to reach out to me at any time! I love chatting with y’all!
