Jhonni Blaze was born on the 10th of June, 1990 in New York City. She holds American nationality but her family is of German and African American descent. She grew up with 7 other siblings and her parents but not much is known about the rest of her family as Jhonni doesn’t talk about them. Her family reportedly had it rough and Jhonni got used to a hard life. As a child, she had a very hot temper that earned her a special nickname.
Perhaps as a way to deal with the harsh realities of life, Jhonni started getting into trouble from the tender age of 15. She got involved with substance abuse and promiscuity all through her teenage years and most of her adult life. Before you extend any sympathy to this fierce lady, you should know that she doesn’t regret anything from her past. She has repeatedly been vocal about issues of self-identity, claiming that everyone should have the confidence to be who they truly are. According to her, her past experiences all formed and shaped the person that she is today.
When Jhonni was 17 years old, she applied for Julliard Performing Arts School but unfortunately wasn’t accepted. This, however, did not stop her from chasing a career and making the best out of life.
