[Our Model Of The Day]
Where She’s From: Crystal Jenkins was born and raised in Jersey City, NJ and now lives in Mount Pocono, PA. “The Most important thing I learned growing up was to be the best person I can be as an individual; positive energy will also give you positive results,” she tells The Black Star News.
Crystal attended Henry Snyder High School in Jersey City, where she also ran track. “I also dreamed of becoming a model,” she says. “I launched my modeling career three years after my son was born. I have been modeling only for a few months; most photographers think I have been modeling for years, because of the energy and talent I bring to the table. I love every second of it.”
Where She’s At: “I am still I the Building process and want to get out there and move fast,” she adds, with confidence. “I see myself moving towards glamour modeling, and print and commercial work.”
Crystal is 5”3; she is beautiful and is proud of her wonderful physique, which, with her excellent shoots has started opening doors for her in the industry.
“I do killer poses and facial expression, so when people look at me they don’t consider my height a challenge,” she says. “They will see me as an individual with talent.”
“I believe brainpower is a very important part of being a model, if not the most important part,” Crystal notes. “Brainpower enables you to take control of your career as a model. There are many people and agencies that will attempt to cheat models out of their money.”
So how does Crystal get ready to step out? “Banana Republic—love the colors and the clothes fit; Abercrombie & Fitch because the clothing run small for my waist. Aldo shoes are very comfy and I love to shop at Calvin Klein. I use Jergens lotion and bath and body works for a more scented smell. I use only Lancôme make-up and facial cleaners which is expensive but worth the money. I wear Ralph Lauren Perfume it’s the best smell and Code by Versace.”
Crystal’s Words Of Wisdom: “If you have a dream and a goal, keep trying to achieve it-never allow anyone to tell you, you can’t. Your dreams and goals are what you will be in the future.”
Crystal’s Secrets Of Success: “Always have a goal and never forget that goal.”
Three Black Leaders That Most Inspire Crystal: “Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, and Malcolm X.”
The First Things Crystal Would Do As President: “Increase the minimum wage and abolish taxes.”
