My name is Jocelyn Valencia, a multi-faceted creative entrepreneur passionate about creating meaningful experiences and valuable content. I am the Founder of this blog turned boutique agency, with JOCELYN (formerly known as JRECOGNIZE), where I primarily work with artists, brands and organizations in bringing ideas of all scales to life.

I also run an annual music festival, which was Founded in 2015, called the Tucson Hip Hop Festival. It's extremely culture/community driven and has garnered the attention of both national and local festivals/publications. It's been one of the most rewarding, challenging, and best things I've ever had a hand in creating and I take a lot of pride in it. 

Aside from taking on clients and my festival, I also produce smaller scaled events that uplift community, artistry, self-care and self-development. All of which are aspects I try to integrate into all my personal curations.

My diverse experience has allowed me to develop a diverse skillset. I've been very fortunate to have been able to explore working in many different positions (with various organizations) in the event and content production industries (along with others), which in turn helped me discover both my strengths and passions. 

On my free time I like to eat at local restaurants, work at coffee shops in new cities, and read self-development books under the sun!

I’m on a mission to inspire millions via the power of words and experience. We all have a story to tell or an idea to pursue and it’s my passion to help share that in a way that is uniquely influential.
