Starting Your Dreams Later In Life and Embracing the Detour

Jenee Darden speaking at Creative Mornings I know it's been a while since I've posted anything but that's because of my job. I'm working as a reporter covering Oakland and I host an arts segment on the radio where I get to interview amazing artists from around the Bay Area. Plus I'm publicizing my book  and building my speaking career!  You know what's funny? I thought this would all happen by the time I was 27-30.  Nope. That wasn't God's plan for me.

Hi!  I'm Jenee Darden. My father is former O.J. Simpson prosecutor Christopher Darden aka The Bald Headed Dude from the O.J. Trial aka That Guy That Looks Like Tommy from Martin

During the original run of The People v. O.J. Simpson I publicly disclosed that I was my father's oldest daughter, and shared how the trial impacted me. I was 15 during the trial. A lot of stuff went down in my personal life and my family's life as a result of the trial. I shared some of my story because the public didn't know how the O.J. Trial affected the families of high-profile figures involved.

During the airing of The People v. O.J. Simpson, I posted a review of each episode with my thoughts on what was real and was made for T.V. Here are links to my posts on the series along with interviews I did about the trial. Thanks for reading!
