Jessie is a 21-year-old full time journalism student at Hong Kong Baptist University. She is very entrepreneurial and started her own business at the age of 20 as COO of LedoAds, a business to promote offline advertisement in different restaurant spaces. Now she has given up her role as COO, but works as a SLASH marketer, a saleswoman, an event-planner, and a PR professional on top of her full-time student status. She is also planning to make use of her network and experience to become a start-up coach, an author of her own book, and a reporter for local magazines.

She earns up to HK$20,000 a month, which is quite a lot for her age and level of experience. She had originally wanted to become a journalist upon graduation, but now that her SLASH lifestyle is working well, financially and personally, Jessie does not want to be a full-time reporter anymore. Instead, she wants to continue her current SLASH lifestyle. She will consider continuing her SLASH lifestyle in the future.
