We found a young man with a charitable outlook on life, John Jamieson Michaels Jr. who is currently a male model. The quote in his email signature is: “I strive to reach my potential, knowing full well I never will; only because my potential is limitless.” We had a chance to talk with J.J. to give you some insight on this small town guy now traveling the world.
The Dapper Style: Where are you from and where are you now?
JJ: I’m from a small town called Thomasville in South Georgia & I currently live in Los Angeles, CA
The Dapper Style: What is the favorite place you have ever visited?
JJ: My favorite place to visit has been Shanghai, China thus far as it is so uniquely different & I have great friends there!
The Dapper Style: What keeps you motivated?
JJ: What keeps me motivated is having something outside of myself to succeed for. Being able to abundantly provide for my loved ones, especially my Mema (mom’s mom) is a huge factor. Having a massive platform to inspire the world is also what motivates me every day!
JJ: My personal clothing style is currently very simple & minimalist. I do like to get super dapper on occasion though at this point, I don’t like to spend much on clothes as I’d rather have money to give to others & to fund my vision! I’ll have nice things later
The Dapper Style: What’s your favorite adult beverage, if any?
JJ: I’m not a big drinker, but I like organic or biodynamic dry red wine when I do!
The Dapper Style: What do you do to keep in great shape?
JJ: To keep in shape I like to mix it up! I enjoy yoga, boxing, lifting, calisthenics, & playing like a kid outside!
