Jchell: Knowing what you know, what advice would you give to other models trying to establish themselves?
Jente: If you are passionate about it go hard, don't give up, stay focused and keep your head on straight. It may get tough at times, but always remember you are your own best interest. No model looks alike unless you're twins, so you have to find out what makes you stand out the most and focus on that. Stay confident through it all, everybody is not going to support you and that's ok as long as you know who's been rocking with you since day 1. “YOU GOT THIS, SO KEEP PUSHING.”
Jchell: Is there anything else you would like to add?
Jente: Put God First and everything else will follow and never put your dreams on hold.
