Jessica Rosa is a 23 year old fashion model studying at American Career College to be a surgical technologist. As she continues to work toward this career, she also is a mother and role model to two beautiful children; Zeria, who recently celebrated her fifth birthday, and Kai who just turned one. She is of Latin American decent with a mother who hails from Honduras, and a father from the neighboring El Salvador, and takes pride in being bilingual; speaking, reading and writing in both English and Spanish.
Ever since the unassuming age of 12, Jessica has had an overwhelming passion and desire to be a model and actress. She spent years dreaming of what could be, but hesitated to take a chance on that dream because of insecurities she faced as a young, growing girl and out of respect her parent’s wishes, both of whom were very conservative. Still at the age of 20, with a fire ever ablaze within her heart, she finally decided to risk everything and enrolled to attend the Barbizon school of modeling, which is where her journey truly began. With each and every show she was blessed to be a part of, Jessica’s natural model looks and larger-than-life charisma and personality led to increased networking and modeling opportunities. She’d been invited to participate in such events as LA Fashion Week, the International Super Model fashion show, the Latino International fashion show, as well as many fundraising events and chances to work with designers such as Larea with Bipolar clothing, Trang Pung with Sen collection, Kevin James with Kevin James clothing to name a few.
Jessica’s inspiration to model has always come from the idea that she wanted to be in the Entertainment industry. She grew up admiring actors & actresses, musicians & athletes and ultimately wanted to be a part of what brought all that stardom to life, to be a part of the production and event planning business.
Her drive to strive for her dreams came from friends and family. They fueled her to push forward and try, but having children really inspired her to provide them with a better life then she did.
What Jessica hopes to achieve is to be in a movie one day and maybe even a Victoria secret model, but over all to show her children never to give up on what you feel passionate about. That even with the mishaps life gives you, stand strong and tall, and push on.
