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.
