Appearing in CBS, NBC, and Investigative Discovery shows and having represented several companies as a brand ambassador, Jean Payen is truly acing his way on top of the career ladder. The young model is determined to pursue his passion and make a name for himself.
Jean Payen is a 24-year-old Brooklyn native model, actor, and brand ambassador. He started his acting and modeling career over two years ago, and since then, he has been in several television shows. He is also a rising brand ambassador for apparel businesses such as Loyal Fitness, Krusaders, Habits 365, and BriBottle.
Admittedly, Jean Payen did not feel content while working full-time and part-time jobs in the education field or as a production assistant while also trying to pursue an acting and modeling career at the same time. He knew he wanted more in life and felt that he could do more for himself and bring more to the table. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, he went through many realizations in life and worked on making a better version of himself physically and mentally.
“The recent COVID-19 pandemic also really opened my eyes to where I was at and that I wasn’t really doing all that I could to get myself out there,” says Jean Payen. He points out that he knew he had to make a change. With that in mind, the first step he took was getting in better shape. He focused on physical fitness and worked hard to attain a more toned body. When he achieved his fitness goal, he knew he was ready to get himself out there.
Today, Jean Payen continues to serve as a brand ambassador when not in front of the camera. In the future, he hopes to establish a bigger name for himself and take his career to a whole new level. His vision for his career includes higher profile acting and modeling roles. Most importantly, he hopes to give back to those who have given him unconditional support as he ventured toward his goals.
Throughout his journey, Jean Payen is not afraid to admit that many discouraged him from pursuing his dreams. “I was told at a young age that I wouldn’t amount to much,” says the rising brand ambassador. But the negativity thrown at him did not slow him down. “I’m showing little by little every day that the negativity given toward me was misplaced because I’m putting it in the work needed to become successful,” he further explains.
Having encountered these unfortunate obstacles in pursuing his dreams, he hopes to serve as an inspiration to other aspirants who are facing the same negative energy. Jean Payen hopes to remind others that there will be many sacrifices needed to achieve one’s dreams, but with true passion, the reward for these sacrifices will eventually outweigh everything else.
Indeed, Jean Payen threaded a difficult track but his determination, hard work, and commitment to become a model and actor has landed him to where he is today. He continues to work hard in becoming a better version of himself as he reaches for bigger dreams.
