I'm a thirty something, life-long MJ fan from New York City. I grew up watching "The Legend Continues" on VHS tape, listening to the dangerous album on repeat and frequenting the Michael Jackson AOL chatroom. I was blessed to see Michael Jackson perform live on September 10, 2001 at Madison Square Garden and being a fan has always been a big part of my life.
For as long as I can remember, meeting other fans, bringing people together and building relationships within the MJ community has been one of my greatest passions. I have spent the last 7 years as the founder and co-organizer for the largest #MJFAM club in the East Coast, Legacy of Love: Michael Jackson Fans United. It was my way of continuing Michael's legacy of uniting people through music and events. With under 250+ unique events under our belt, our club officially disbanded in May 2017. After years of great memories it was time to move on to the next chapter.
It was my honor to serve the Michael Jackson fan community in NYC for as long as I was able to... but now, I'm on a new journey. I am on a mission to learn more about one of my personal heroes and inspirations. Looking beyond the narrative that has been presented and looking Michael's story from a different and personal perspective. If you're reading this.... you're a part of my new chapter.
My favorite album is Dangerous and my favorite short film is a close tie between "Leave Me Alone" & "Remember the Time". I also love the Jackson 5 and Jacksons era music more than anyone else I know!
Aside from being a Michael Jackson fan, MJFANGIRL is an MBA graduate and marketing professional living in New York City.
