Tell us about yourself
Hi there!! My name is Jennifer and I’m from the Big Apple! I come from a Eurasian background. Science, fashion, and animal conservation are my three most passionate goals in life.
What is your biggest dream?
To have my own tv show one day where I can lead discussions on relevant topics such as nutrition, health, and self-esteem, discovering your fashion personality to strengthen self-confidence, and animal conservation!
What does it mean to be your own kind of beautiful?
The word ‘beautiful’ to me means to be happy, confident, and humble while making a positive impact in the world.
Tell us about your modeling experience.
The most unforgettable modeling experience I’ve had was working with Mariana Verkerk, a former judge on Holland’s and Scandinavia’s Next Top Model, in fashion and runway! I’ve also had experience in pageantry and I love showcasing different fashion trends on Instagram!
What is your dream brand to model for?
Lancôme, Michael Kors, and Swarovski to name a few!
How would you describe your fashion style?
Cute, preppy, and elegant. Dresses and skirts are my usual go-tos!
How important is self-awareness and confidence to you in your everyday life?
One of my favorite life quotes of all time is, “you are the architect of your own life.” When I think of self-awareness, I think about my life goals and having the personal freedom and creative means to achieve them. I am reminded to continuously persevere and overcome difficulties as they come. After all, we wouldn’t be able to marvel at the splendor of the Eiffel Tower, Statue of Liberty, Taj Mahal, and several historic landmarks if confidence to build these monumental structures was lost!
What makes you beautiful/handsome?
Making people laugh and bringing out their best qualities :)
What would you say to another girl/guy your age who is struggling with their confidence?
You’re not alone. I’ve been there, too, and it’s a completely normal human experience. The most important thing to remember is to not let your self-doubts dictate your life. Instead, be kind to yourself and don’t be afraid to let your weaknesses become your strengths. Find something that you’re passionate about that makes you happy! Happiness is one of life’s greatest success.
