SHE'S THE WHOLE PACKAGE!
Aah, now where do I start with this gorgeous girl? She is the epitome of beauty and brains. And that is one serious, powerful combination! I first saw her when she won the 2015 Miss Fiestas Patrias Pageant (now Miss Mexican Heritage) and I just fell in love with her face and that million dollar smile! I was asked to be the executive photographer for the 2016 pageant, so I just knew I had to get her in front of my camera!
She is seriously one of the sweetest and most humble young women I have ever met. She radiates a very peaceful and warm energy, and even though she is stunning, there is so much more to her than just what meets the eye. Other than having impeccable style and great taste in music (this girl is in like every concert I cry at home wishing I was at), she is also currently attending UIC with a major in Sociology and a minor in Anthropology. Boom.
So incredibly proud of you Jenni. You are the type of woman I would love my nieces to look up to. As a Latina, you are breaking the mold, stereotypes, and inspiring many girls and women, including me! Keep pursuing your dreams, I know you will go very far!
TO ANY YOUNG LATINA WOMEN IN THE DUPAGE AREA WHO ARE CONTINUING THEIR EDUCATION BEYOND HIGH SCHOOL, PLEASE APPLY! THERE IS SO MUCH TO GAIN! THIS IS NOT JUST ABOUT BEAUTY, THIS IS A SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM! AND I MEAN, YOU ALSO GET TO SHOOT WITH ME SO IT'S A WIN, WIN!
From the MCCD site:
"Our program is designed to help and guide young Latinas who are enrolled in school. We focus and encourage continued education and provide workshops that not only are beneficial during the college years but in the professional life after graduation and in their daily life as well."
