Jess Sandoval

Despite her laid back demeanor and spontaneous vibes, Jess is a Senior about to pop out of Penn with a Wharton degree in Management and Operations w/ a minor in Spanish. She wants to help the intersection of music and social impact find a larger platform amongst underserved communities and eat lots of mac n’ cheese along the way. On any given Sunday, you can catch her starting a mosh pit at one of her own shows or making a spiritual connection with the cashier at Wawa at 4am. If you are reading this on a mobile device and she catches you she will walk directly into you so you never stare at your screen while walking anywhere ever again. Look up and smell the roses, people.
