“If you don’t know me – hello, I’m Jade, and you can find my past work under a pseudonym I used for years, “Jennie” Runk. If you knew “Jennie” Runk – then hello again, it’s nice to finally meet you.
When I began modeling in the early 2000’s, I never anticipated that someday I would take the time to examine my relationship to gender and discover that I’m not, in fact, a woman at all? I did all the things women were “supposed to do,” but the whole time, it felt like society had placed a role onto me that wasn’t actually written for me. I played it well.
Changing my name has made me feel so free, so much more in tune with myself, and so much more beautiful at the same time. I am gender-fluid, and it would be a disservice to myself if I didn’t enjoy and embrace that.”
Jade was discovered at the age of 13 while volunteering with local animal rescue group in Chesterfield, Missouri. With a Creative Writing degree from Stephens College, she has a passion for writing and acting as well. She utilizes her platform to advocate for inclusion in fashion and media, particularly where it concerns body diversity and the LGBTQIA+ community.
