Jessica Gomes: Model/Owner of Equal Beauty
About Jessica's World —
Where did you grow up? What is one of your favorite childhood memories?
I grew up in Perth Western Australia! One of my favorite childhood memories is waking up to the birds and the dead stillness and quiet of isolated Perth. Also, playing with my brother and sister.
Any fun "behind the scenes" of your life you can tell us!
I'm a total rap nerd. I wish I was a rapper. I'm constantly trying to memorize lines but can't. Lol
You have been selected as our “Women of Courage” this month. Can you tell us what Courage means to you?
It means to just believe in yourself. To be your true self. To not judge yourself or others and to just get out there and be a gangster and DO IT. I think being kind to people is cool and very courageous. People mistake kindness as a weakness but it's not! Smart people are kind.
"...be your true self. To not judge yourself or others and to just get out there and be a gangster and DO IT. I think being kind to people is cool and very courageous".
What is one of the biggest challenges you face and what gives you the courage to face that challenge?
Probably just the judgement of others. I'm learning to just not judge myself and to not worry or care what others think of me and my life. I'm cultivating happiness within myself and my environment and I'm totally living my life in the realest and most pure way. I'm on the freedom tour 2020! Haha
Words to live by:
Stay true to yourself and your own beliefs. You know in your soul/gut what's best for you!!! Don't listen to other people. Just do you!!
