Alba in one sentence – Jessica is the stunning girl next door, an inspiring woman, talented actress and an amazing lady all around.


The most important thing I have learned in life was that being a teenager wasn't forever. I had a hard time being a teenager.

My theory is that if you look confident, you can pull off anything - even if you have no clue what you're doing.

I wish I was more educated but I make do with the tools I was given in life.
