Jada Malay is #JustAKidFromAkron. Sounds familiar right? Jada is a trained dancer that hails from the hometown of LeBron James – Akron, Ohio. Quickly rising and gaining social media notoriety from Tik Tok, Dubsmash and Instagram, Jada is taking the Gen Z dance community by storm and adding her own spice. At the tender age of 12 years old, Jada’s passions are advocating for Anti-Bullying and encouraging every dancer that no matter their level of dancing that they are enough and can do anything they put their minds to.
Here’s 5 fast facts about Jada Malay!
In addition to dancing, she is also a host.
My most special moment was booking my first hosting gig. Booking gigs never gets old, but it’s nothing like getting that first call for something you’ve worked so hard for. I hosted a talent show where I was able to interact and just have fun with the crowd, those are my favorite times to really just be engaged. Oh, and not to mention meeting the special performers of that night Tootie Raw and Ivy, who are the children of legendary rapper Boosie.
She gets recognized on the street!
Strangest moment is when my supporters come up to me when they see me in public and start crying because they’re excited to meet me. I’m like, “It’s just me…Jada.” LOL, I’m still getting used to this fame thing. Being recognized for dancing and doing what I love on social media takes away from the strangeness a little.
She once had bad case of Escalaphobia.
My most embarrassing moment was when I was at the mall with my family and I fell down the escalators because I was too chicken to walk down them like a normal person…[inserts facepalm]. Oh and I failed to mention (or not) that I was crying tears that were not of joy. For the life of me I still don’t understand why there wasn’t another way downstairs beside the escalator.
She’s trying to break into acting.
People would be surprised to know that even though I am a dance sensation and dancing is what I love to do, I want to do more than “just dance.” I have aspirations of becoming an actor one day. *patiently waits to get booked for a role*
She just CANNOT eat this one thing, which probably drives her mom crazy: ____________.
Well naming one is going to be impossible when I will absolutely REFUSE to eat vegetables. I just don’t like the taste of them. I know they’re supposed to be good for you and all but I just CANNOT. I do like corn though.
