Tell us about yourself.
My name is Jessica, I was born and raised on Long Island, New York! I am 19 years old and I currently attend college in Southern Florida.
What is your biggest dream?
My biggest dream is to be successful and happy in whatever career path I take. I believe that everyone should pursue what they love to do, and no one should have to settle.
What does it mean to be your own kind of beautiful?
I think it’s important to understand that everyone has a different definition of the word “beautiful”. Therefore, your “beautiful” could be opposite the persons sitting next to you. Every man and woman should embrace they’re own self and be confident in they’re own skin.
Tell us about your modeling experience.
When it comes to modeling, I do have in studio and on location experience. I have also done live hair modeling, and I’m excited to gain more experience.
What is your dream brand to model for?
My dream brand to see myself advertising would probably be Target. I like the diversity they have in they’re stores and it would be a dream come true to see myself representing them.
How would you describe your fashion style?
My fashion style I would describe as comfortable and feminine. I love wearing spring and summer colors, and feeling genuinely confident in how I look.
How important is self-awareness and confidence to you in your everyday life?
I believe it is important to be confident and self aware while just doing everyday things. How you act and present yourself subconsciously says something about your character and is what many first impressions are based off of.
What makes you beautiful?
Personally, I think that beauty is on the inside as well as the outside. With that being said, I think that being very personable and outgoing contributes to my beauty. My confidence and how I carry myself also play a role in that as well.
What would you say to another girl your age who is struggling with their confidence?
I would tell them that they need to find themselves, and stay true to themselves and not to change for anyone or any idea. In doing that, confidence will present itself and they will gain it along the way.
