HI, I'M JESS EKSTROM!

I’m an author, speaker, and the founder of Headbands of Hope, Mic Drop Workshop, and Prompted.io. Here’s my story…

In college I started my company, Headbands of Hope, based on the idea that  SMALL ACTS OF KINDNESS can make a HUGE IMPACT. 

Now, Headbands of Hope has donated over 1 MILLION headbands to kids with illnesses and reached every hospital in America and 22 countries.
