Makeup artist and model Jess Lee Wong has worked the runaway, music video shoots, and photo shoots. She was also a finalist in the Miss Universe Jamaica Pageant in August 2017. This week, the lovely, brown skin beauty took to Instagram to celebrate her 25th Birthday with her followers in a series of photos and expressed how she had come to terms with who she was as a person.
“This year I have come to terms with who I am… a stubborn, humble, diva. I am an extremist, perfectionist ambivert. I am confident and I do not put energy into thinking about what others may assume of me. I am that friend who will hurt feelings to see them grow. I love myself first and I do not make excuses for it. I compare myself to no one. I could care less about celebrities, but I care very much about the amount of sauce in my food. I am selfish and self less and I am working on myself daily! I am in love with the woman that I am today, I am becoming the woman I’ve always wanted to be.”
Earlier this month, JessleeWong also reached a milestone on Instagram and celebrated with another hot and steamy set of photos.
She stated, ” 50K?! All I can say is “THANK YOU.” I remember when I first started my Instagram account and it was primarily to push my make up career forward. I was very resistant to social media. I thought it was dumb… I thought I was “too cool” for it. .
Eventually I realized that it was a platform to inspire, connect and appreciate others… and luckily all of those factors were returned to me and then some. I appreciate each and every follower who has decided to stay in contact with me and support my dreams. .
I try my best to respond to each comment and transcend how important they are to me. I hope my page ultimately introduces your world to mine, and continues to grow in the spirit of positivity. I “do it for the love, not for the likes.”
I took this video the day I entered the Miss Universe Jamaica competition. My hair, makeup and swimsuit had cooperated with me and I felt beautiful! After I was selected as a finalist I was advised to lose weight by many who had my interest of winning heart. They told me that if I was to win I needed to drop as much weight as possible. . Ironically, I dropped the weight so quickly that the day of the pageant I had to walk off the stage because I almost fainted. I shake my head now looking at this video where I believe that I still looked so gorgeous, and I know I would’ve enjoyed my pageant experience more if I did not allow the opinions of others to get to me… . I vow to myself to NEVER allow any person, competition or ideal of beauty change what I feel or do to myself. Whatever I decide to do to my body is my decision. Regardless of how crucial the situation may be. My happiness should never be negotiable ✌🏾 . . 👻empress_jess . . #swimwear2017 #swimsuitseason #modelinglife #modelingforfun #flawsome #miamimodelsearch #jamaicanmodels #jamaicanwomen #jamaicanstyle #jamaicalife #jamaicalove #islandfashion #islandbeauties #confidenceboost #confidenceisyou #confidentwomen #alwaysloveyou #beautifulblackgirls #beautifulblackwomen #youareenough #beautywithin #challengethestatusquo #youaregoodenough #bedifferent #modelwithcurves #curvymodel #curvymodels #bighairdontcare
