Jabree Penaloza Says:


I wanted to start off by saying that for reference I'm female & Latina. My mother named me Jabari, which I later changed to Jabree for pronunciation reasons. Despite the original spelling, those closest to me have always pronounced my name as "Jab-ree" & family members gave me the nickname "Jabi" for short. I've come to love & appreciate my name & it's uniqueness. I just thought I'd share this for moms out there looking for something a little different (:
