Tell us about yourself.
Hello, my name is Jomely B. I was born in 1998. I have lived in the Dominican Republic, New York, Boston and Florida. I entered the modeling world when I was 5 years old working runway in the Dominican Republic.
What is your biggest dream?
My biggest dream is to grow my current business and show small business the effect that Marketing can create as well as growing my clothing line. Aside from this I have begun to give confidence awareness and tips through social media, and I will like to educate the world of the positive impact people can have on social media.
What does it mean to be your own kind of beautiful?
I believe that “being your own kind of beautiful” simply means stay true to yourself, finding who you are, your inner beauty, your dreams and beliefs without putting into consideration the thoughts of anyone else whom can possibly negatively impact your life.
Tell us about your modeling experience.
Over the past years, I have grown as an individual and I thank modeling for a lot. I have worked with big brands such as Fashion Nova, Shoe Dazzle, Red Bull and many more. I also have faced rejection simply because I have “curly hair” and have been scammed. So, I know a lot about the industry and I am very careful whom to trust. Which is good to have a good agency represent me.
What is your dream brand to model for?
My dream brands to model from have always been Guess and Revolve.
How would you describe your fashion style?
My fashion style is difficult and simple to explain. I wear everything from casual, boho, sneakers or glam.
How important is self-awareness and confidence to you in your everyday life?
Self-awareness and confidence are key in my everyday life. I used to be bully growing up and faced many challenges. I had a journey to become confident and when I walk anywhere, I carry that confidence inside and out with a big heart.
What makes you beautiful?
I believe what makes me beautiful is my personality. I look beyond the physical when I’m looking at myself or others. People tend to admire how natural and genuine I am in any kind of situation whether is with friends or strangers. People always have a set perspective of me just because “I model” but every single person that has spoken with me changes that perspective and always asks how I am so nice and smart and also so popular.
What would you say to another girl/guy your age who is struggling with their confidence?
I would tell them to own their inner beauty. Because no one can ever be like them and that is an advantage. Also, the things that we do not embrace and are self-conscious about are those things that usually others desire. I was not confident and hated my hair. Until my hair became an accessory and what I am known for in a positive manner.
