FASHION MODEL & CURLY GIRL
Jesyka’s passion for instilling confidence in women derives from her own insecurities which she struggled with in her past. Born of mixed race ethnicity in an interracial family, Jesyka grew up feeling as though she didn’t “fit” into any box: racially or aesthetically. This was reflected in her real life as well as the lack of diversity in the fashion industry. It wasn’t until college when Jesyka found herself in an accepting and diverse environment that she was encouraged to love every aspect of herself, especially her big curly hair. This was challenging, given her uncertainties growing up because her hair wasn’t glamorized in society. However, Jesyka realized her hair was a vital part of her identity and that she should embrace it rather than run away from it. She hopes that women of all ages, races and walks of life will be encouraged to love themselves for who they are! Now that the fashion industry has opened up to a diversity of body types, hair types and skin types, Jesyka is a mentor and unofficial agent for younger models. She strives to give young models access to the information she’s gleaned from her own career and mistakes. Jesyka has walked the runway in New York Fashion Week, Los Angeles Fashion Week and been featured in print magazines and campaigns for prominent designers such as Walter Mendez, Stello, Adoflo Sanchez, Marcelo Pendola, Clutch Crowns, Sophie Chang, Rocky Gathercole, Dena Burton and many more. She has also been featured in commercial advertisements for Nike, Swim Spot, Allure Bridal, and Elle. Jesyka is still a brand ambassador and model for new designers and fashion blogs.
