We had the good fortune of connecting with Kelsey Jones and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kelsey, do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
I’ve always been very determined whether that’s in school or my career. Everybody knows their limits and what they can handle. I’ve never been the person to over exert myself. Just because something is difficult or you have obstacles in your life doesn’t mean to give up. I always like to think about the commitments I make and not to overwhelm myself. I love challenges.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My hard work and accomplishments have led me to where I am today with the help of Benet Embry. Ever since I was six years old I’ve always had the passion to sing in my church choir and I was also in theater. The biggest challenge I’ve had to face has been had been getting out of my comfort zone, but with the help of my friends and family I’ve been able to overcome my doubts and fears. I’ve learned how to have more confidence and be patient. I want the world to know that I wouldn’t have been able to do any of this is if God didn’t instill it in me. I am very appreciative of such a great opportunity and I’m looking forward to see what comes next.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’m an outdoors person I love outdoor events. I would show my friend some of the major attractions in Dallas. Like the Hyatt Regency Hotel, it is a 29 story tall restaurant that rotates and looks over the city of Dallas. We would go to the Dallas World Aquarium and the Klyde Warren Park. We would also go to Six Flags Amusement Park and afterwards eat seafood.
