Top Model's Jaslene Graces The Cover of Latina Mag!
Great to see Top Model's Cycle 8 winner Jaslene on the cover of the August issue of Latina! She looks fantastic, we have to say. Did any of you get your hands on the mag yet? Check out this Jaslene Q & A they've posted online -- she talks about her dreams of becoming a Victoria's Secret Angel, growing up in Chicago's Humboldt Park neighborhood, and how much she loves to eat (really!).
We've highlighted some choice Jas quotes. On being a Latina in the modeling industry:
"As Latinas, we have that natural swagger—we're more vocal and we don't hide anything. I'll open up to you, pour my heart out. People appreciate a person like that, especially in this industry, so I just decided to be myself."
On overcoming an abusive relationship:
"What helped me was having faith in God, and this book my mom gave me called Your Best Life Now, which changed my life. I found my inner strength, and I have no regrets."
Tell us what you think of Jaslene on Latina!
