Jenna Ushkowitz is a Korean American adoptee from Seoul, South Korea who was adopted at 3 months old through Love the Children Adoption Agency. She grew up in East Meadow, New York with her parents Brad and Judi Ushkowitz, and an older brother, Gregg. As a child, Jenna worked in the entertainment industry acting in commercials, Broadway and television. She attended Holy Trinity High School, known for its prestigious theatre program, and graduated from Marymount Manhattan College in 2007 with a BA in Theatre Performance. After performing in Broadway’s “Spring Awakening,” Jenna landed a role on the hit show “Glee” in 2008 and moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams in television and film. In 2014, Jenna was approached by friend Samantha Futerman with an amazing story on her own adoption. Knowing that not all adoptees had the same comfortable experience as herself and Samantha, the women felt compelled to take action by creating an inspiring resource for other adoptees so they know they are not alone, no matter what their personal journey has been.
