Jenin was born and raised in Miramar, Florida. She always wanted to craft stories but wondered whether she should write them or just illustrate them. After being discovered on Instagram by her awesome agent, Christy Ewers of the CAT agency, Jenin learned that she didn’t have to choose. Since signing with the CAT agency in 2020, Jenin has illustrated three picture books: Song In The City (2022), All The Places We Call Home (2022) and Super Mom (2022). She is currently writing her debut middle grade novel First Borns Only.
