I have done some amazing things in my life, and I am beyond grateful for all of those opportunities. Thanks to you, I have been able to attend events like the FOX American Country Awards, Warped Tour, Luke Bilyk's 16th Birthday Party, OMG Music Fest, INTOUR, and countless others. I have visited places like Island Def Jam in New York City, the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, the Pasadena Convention Center in Los Angeles, and even the Degrassi set in Canada. None of this would have been possible without the support of my readers, my friends, and my family.
When I started this blog I was fifteen-years-old, and my goal was to create a media outlet for the voice of young people to be heard. I wanted to prove that age did not have to be a barrier to success. Now, at 21-years-old I am living in Los Angeles, California, pursuing my dream even further. I hope I have been able to encourage some of you to follow your dreams as well.
There are some changes coming to Jay Swag. Moving forward, this blog will continue with media coverage, since that is what started it all, but I will now focus on my interviews, videos, and overall lifestyle. I will be posting about events I attend, things I do, and much more! Pictured above is our new logo. Welcome to Jay Swag by John Panichella.
We are six years in, and I don't plan on stopping any time soon. Here's to another six years!
