JRECOGNIZE was founded by Jocelyn Valencia to serve as a creative outlet to house her inspirations, adventures, and journey as a writer + event curator. Not only was it created as a space to express visions and ventures but, also, to inspire others and spread positivity. From showcasing other artists and entrepreneurs to collaborating with fellow creatives, Jocelyn documents her life, the lives of others and writes informative posts for healthy self-development. Aside from JRECOGNIZE, Jocelyn is the Co-Director for the Tucson Hip Hop Festival, Social Media Manager/Co-Host for Words On the Avenue, Event Curator for TEDxTucson + the Tucson Poetry Festival, and is the Community Ambassador for Connect Coworking.

Jocelyn's work has been featured in HipHop DX,, Bloguettes, Zocalo Magazine, Daily Wildcat, Tucson Weekly, AZ Daily Star, Hot 98.3, KXCI, and more.
