During the conversation, Jennifer discussed giving up on school at the young age of 14 in order to pursue acting as a career.

“I dropped out of middle school. I don’t technically have a GED or a diploma. I am self-educated,” she said.

“I wanted to forge my own path. I found what I wanted to do and I didn’t want anything getting in the way of it. Even friends, for many years, were not as important to me as my career.”
