Jett James Pruitt
Nominated for the Pulitzer Prize at age 15, Jett James Pruitt is an award-winning student, author, political strategist, and founder/editor-in-chief of the political news website, TheGenZPost.com.
Born in 2005, Jett was diagnosed with “moderate to severe autism” at the age of two, and was completely non-verbal until the age of four. After numerous early intervention programs and holistic treatments, Jett shocked the medical community with his recovery, and formally lost his Autism diagnosis by the age of six.
Raised by a single Native American mother in New York City, Jett’s unique interest in politics began at the age of nine, blossoming with the 2016 presidential election. At the age of 14, he founded the political news website TheGenZPost.com and became one of the U.S. Press Association’s youngest members in history.
His first book, THROUGH THE EYES OF A YOUNG AMERICAN, was written when Jett was fourteen-years-old and attending the eighth grade. Published traditionally by Vanderbilt Publishing, the book spent months at Amazon's List of Top 20 Books in Politics.
Called one of the "Best Books of 2020" by BooksOnPolitics.com, his stellar debut is a powerful commentary on today’s political landscape, and offers ways to resolve our nation’s biggest challenges with health care, taxation, social security, trade, tariffs, protectionism, automation, climate change, education, debt forgiveness, wealth inequality, labor, welfare, wages, military spending, border security, universal basic income, capitalism, entrepreneurship, abortion, gun violence, child sex trafficking, racism, and the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.
Today, Jett enjoys living with his mother and stepfather in Palm Beach, Florida. He maintains excellent grades while attending virtual high school, and looks forward to publishing more political books, attending college and law school, and ultimately working in Washington, D.C. in the areas of politics and journalism.
