several times. She attended secondary school at the Jo Richardson Community School in Dagenham. Jesy was a dedicated drama and music student and so then attended Abbs Cross Academy and Arts College in Hornchurch. Also, Jesy went to Sylvia Young and Yvonne Rhodes theatre school. 

Career

X Factor (2011)

Jesy auditioned for X Factor with the song "Bust Your Windows" by Jazmine Sullivan in Glasgow and received praise from both Tulisa Contostavalos and Louis Walsh, however Gary Barlow wasn't impressed at all saying he just didn't get it and found her vocals to be, in his words, "generic". But Jesy was still able to move forward to Bootcamp where she was unsuccessful as a solo artist. 
Capture

She was then put in a four piece band named "Faux Pas"  with fellow future Little Mix member Perrie Edwards. Faux Pas were unsuccessful, fortunately though both Jesy and Perrie were asked to form a new four piece band Rhythmix  with Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock. 

During the X Factor shows, Jesy was the victim of a horrible online bullying campaign against her. Jesy was exposed to nasty comments about her appearance and was visibly upset, but she received huge support not only from Mixers (their fanbase name) but other music fans. Little Mix went on to win the X Factor and automatically released their cover single "Cannonball".

DNA (2012-present)

Quotes

I’m not going on a diet, I’m not trying to lose weight, because your insecurities are what make you different and if everyone looked the same, it’d be boring

—Jesy Nelson

I have the girls and they are like my family now. For every bad comment, there are 100 nice ones.

—Jesy Nelson

When I was younger I got bullied about the way I looked and I thought once I was older it would stop. I hated going to school, but didn’t know who to talk to about it. It knocked my confidence a lot.

—Jesy Nelson

“A lot of work goes into it! We have an amazing stylist and she always has a massive comb—she straightens my hair, then goes through it with a hair-dryer and diffuser. Mine is really curly naturally, but this is not all my own hair. It’s too short. Jade is the only one with her own hair!”

—Jesy

“When we dye our hair, like the colors Perrie and Jade have right now, it’s a stain, not proper hair dye. You wash your hair and it comes right out—it’s so annoying. Every time you wash it, you have to dye it again, so they never wash it.”

—Jesy

“I’ve never in my life worn heels! When we do things like premieres, they tell me, ‘You can’t wear sneakers—you’ve got to wear heels.’ But we can’t dance in heels. I don’t know how Beyonce does it. I would literally break my neck if I performed in heels! It’s really important to feel comfortable so we perform at our best, so it's flats all the way!”

—Jesy
