Heyyoo! My name is Jaelynn Zewde. I am a Christian, model, health coach, and healthy lifestyle expert. Born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana, I grew up on the "cheapest" & "fastest" food. Diabetes, obesity, PCOS, cancer, heart complications, and mental health issues have run rampant in my bloodlines. I knew I didn't want that for my future, but the overwhelming amount of contradicting misinformation online when it came to wellness drove me insane. I went down many rabbit holes in wellness-topic research. I'd study Harvard PDF documents about cells and their interactions with others, etc. I made Excel spreadsheets on random things like amino acids.
I started modeling at 17. When I hit 19, there was much more pressure to "lose inches."
Copy from an actual email:
"If you look at your most recent set of digitals that I’ve sent (and I’ve deleted a ton where your arms and thighs look really soft ) you’ve also added on a half of an inch on the hips since a month ago)...you also have to stay on top of your body at all times. Think of modeling as if it was a competitive sport and yourself as a competitive athlete.. Your skin and smile has improved so much since you first came in through our door – it looks amazing – I need your body to match that. I know you can do it! :)”
