My name is Jenna Mourey, most of you probably know me as Jenna Marbles, maker of the YouTube videos on the internet machine. I'm originally from Upstate New York, Rochester to be exact (close your eyes and imagine Canada, it's just like that except according to the people that drew the boundaries separating countries, it's America, but I disagree). I moved to Boston where I attended undergraduate school at Suffolk University, obtaining a BS in Psychology and stayed for graduate school where I received a Masters in Sport Psychology and Counseling from Boston University. Then I decided it was time to be a grown up and worked a bunch of random jobs for a while, none of which required being an actual grown up. I started to make some YouTube videos and I guess people liked them so I just kept doing it. I have two awesome dogs named Mr. Marbles and Kermit, a chihuahua and an italian greyhound. They don't really help me do anything like hold cameras, edit, etc., which is the whole reason I hired them, but they are too cute to fire so I keep them around, they make a lot of cameos. That is the end of chapter 5. Stay tuned for chapters 6, 7, and 8 part 1 called Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Wait I'm confused. Where am I? What is my life about?

Artifact Analysis I: Jenna Marbles, Role Model? by Trista Wolter
Now, I realize that this paper has been mostly me arguing with myself as to whether or not I consider her a good role model. Parts of me want to be like, “Shit yeah, she’s hilarious!” But the mother of a daughter in me is like, “Hmm, do I really want my daughter growing up to idolize people like this?” The answer is yes. I’d rather have her idolizing some potty-mouthed girl who doesn’t take life too seriously and promotes monogamy than some trashy actress that has serious drug problems, or pop stars that admittedly sleep around.

Jenna Marbles is One of My Favorite Feminists…? by mayahdoesntlikeusernames
So remember that maybe a year or two ago when everyone discovered Jenna Marbles? I watched a few of her videos, subscribed to her channel because “lol. THIS CHICK.” But then after I watched a few more videos, I unsubscribed because I thought she was obnoxious and kind of slutty. It made me angry that people on the internet thought she was the epitome of youtube hilarity when there were other better quality youtubers who made “truly” humorous videos.
But recently I have realized that not only do I like Jenna Marbles, but I also really respect her.
