- She has affirmed that her parents have always had her back. When she was younger, they had told her to pursue whatever she was naturally drawn to, whether it was Mathematics, Science, reading, or writing. That would make Jennifer feel like she really had a strong foundation with them believing in her and ready to support her in any of her endeavors.
