Jessica Thompson

Jessica Thompson is actually one of my friends from The Bahamas. We grew up on the same island, and would frequently run into each other at different events, whether they were fashion related or not! The thing I love about Jessica is the fact that she's so friendly and approachable. When you're in her presence, her smile invites you to start a conversation, and it's hard to say that about models in general. She's very down to earth, and a great addition to my series! Check out the interview below:
