Going beyond the usual influencer scene of promoting brands, Jordan Boyd puts more focus into using his influence to uplift others. He inspires people to chase after their dreams and, at the same time, equip them with the necessary tools needed for life. The rising social media star seeks to redefine what it means to be an “influencer” by having a more substantial impact on people’s mentality.
Jordan is an Instagram personality born and raised in Batavia, Illinois, but now resides in Bolingbrook, Illinois. With a large following that continues to increase day by day, he has been modeling and promoting verified brands for six years. As a public figure, his ultimate goal is to reach the masses and remind them that even without fame, one can still have a massive impact on the world.
The 24-year-old is an aspiring professional basketball player who continues to work on his basketball development skills. From El Salvador to the Dominican Republic, Jordan has traveled overseas to play sports professionally. His passion for basketball began at an early age. Despite being a homeschooled kid, he managed to win a high school three-point contest at Missouri State during his junior year. Following that win, he placed second in the competition the next year at Liberty University. When he was 18 years old, he had the opportunity to compete with NBA legend Paul George in a three-point contest where Jordan lost by 2 points as Paul hit 13 three-pointers and Jordan only hit 11. He has also competed and beat NBA superstar Klay Thompson in a virtual shooting workout through the app “ShotTracker.”
While much of his interests revolve around everything basketball-related, the rising content creator is also keen on fashion, working out, and his sleek-looking Jeep. But beyond all of this, he is an avid advocate of more significant things in life. With the pandemic at hand, he is at the forefront of the “#MaskUpChicago” movement. #MaskUpChicago is a movement he made, and he is creating brand face masks with create-your-own options. His followers are witness to his commitment to masking up to save lives. As can be seen from his recent pictures on Instagram, Jordan flaunts stylish masks to complete his outfits.
What makes Jordan stand out from the rest is his deep understanding of the “power” influencers possess and the responsibility that these large numbers of followers come with. With that said, he strives to use his influence in the best ways possible. While he champions promoting brands, products, and almost everything else on his Instagram feed, he also ensures that he impacts his followers’ lives on a deeper level.
Jordan is looking to establish connections with people who have the same goals and aspirations as him. Moreover, he also loves to engage with his followers and establish common interests with them. By inspiring them to not give up pursuing their dreams and working on becoming better versions of themselves, he hopes to leave a mark in the industry that redefines the meaning and essence of “influencers.”
