On April 25 episode of SBS' television show 'Tikita Car', Jessi made a guest appearance.
Jessi said, "The area where I lived in the States had no Asians. I was the only Asian in my school. I was constantly bullied. It lasted for like six years."
She continued, "For those six years, an anger built inside me. So, one day, I stood up against the bullies. Following that day, nobody bullied me anymore."
She went on, "A lot of people say that I seem like a strong person. Yes, it's true. I believe I've become mentally strong because of the things that happened in my past."
Jessi said, "My life was tough, but I didn't want my mom to worry about me. So, I told my mom this all the time, 'I'm okay, mom. Everything is fine with me.'"
She resumed, "Even if I sink to the bottom, I'll always rise back up. My mom tells me how incredible I am, seeing what I had gone through."
