Meet the Model: Jessica Gomes (Part 2)

Author:

*******************

Before we ever sat down with Jessica Gomes, we knew about her love of Grand Prix racing, appearance on Korean Dancing With the Stars and her desire to be a "badass rapper,"  When we finally spoke to her, she opened up about her start in modeling, the meaning of her tattoos and love for fellow Aussie Elle Macpherson. In Part 2 of our interview, Gomes discussed a wide range of topics. Here are some of the highlights:

On the worst date she's ever been on:"It was soooo bad. My friend had this wise idea to connect me and his friend together. I went and met him at the restaurant and it was just awkward. At the end of the night it was just like 'Yeah goodbye. I don't ever want to see you again.'"

On the best part of being a model: "You get to travel and experience different cultures. You get to meet people and every day you're growing and evolving. I really love my job. I really love what I do. I definitely feel like think this is what I'm meant to be doing. I've been doing it since I was young. This is who I am."

On the worst part of being a model: "Making sacrifices like being away from your family for so long. Having to grow up really quickly. I left home at 17 years old. Sometimes the lifestyle can be pretty hard hardcore but in general, I think modeling is pretty awesome."
