How does it feel to be selected as one of the Abners Angels?
It feels amazing. It’s such an honor, I’m very thankful and excited for this opportunity!
What was the first job you ever booked as a model?
The first job I ever booked was with a Houston Rapper, his IG is @deeacetx. It was for one of his music video shoots. I played as this evil, temptatious, vixen who’s after him. I even got the chance to work with a wonderful creative director, @kenieceee. It was really fun and I learned a lot as a model and actress.
What physical features do you get the most compliments on?
I get the most compliments on my smile, eyes and body.
What do you think you look the sexiest in?
Honestly, I feel most sexiest in my confidence. As long as I feel confident and strong it doesn’t matter what I have on, I own it.
What is your greatest weakness, as a model? What are you doing to improve on it?
I think my greatest weakness is my occasional self doubt. Sometimes I have stopped myself from pursuing opportunities, because of overthinking and believing I wasn’t “good enough”. I’ve been working on putting more faith in God and trusting in his plan. Believing in myself, talent and accepting myself and positivity more.
What are your modeling goals for 2020?
Well in 2020, I’m actually going to slow down a little on my modeling. Focus more on my acting career and combining those two talents. I have a couple goals of getting booked in at least one TV series, a magazine issue and gaining more exposure for my talents.
If you were arrested with no explanation, what would your friends and family assume you had done?
I’d say I’m very outspoken and passionate. So if I’d got arrested it might be for speaking out against an injustice or maybe getting arrested at a protest or something.
Are you a flower person or a gift person?
Well, I would think flowers are gifts too. I love anything someone puts thought into and decides to give to me, so I’d say both.
Restaurant or home cooked meal?
Definitely a home cooked meal, it’s the best and I love to cook!
What’s your most embarrassing childhood memory?
When I was younger, probably like in Kindergarten I think. My mom took me to the doctors office for a regular check up. Now I had a wild imagination, so for some reason I thought to myself what if I stand up and could fly across this room like a bird. If they can do it I can, lol. So I stand on top of the doctors table and with no warning to my mother, I leap off of the table and land face first on the tile floor of the exam room. I didn’t cry, I literally just laid there feeling like the most retarded kid on earth. While my two front teeth are now bestfriends with the floor. My mom is hysterical and yelling “only my damn child would do this dumb sh*t”. The doctors are rushing trying to help us, but all I’m thinking is “damn all my school photos look stupid as hell”, lol. They were until like the 3rd grade when my teeth finally came in, I was freaking out thinking I was never gonna get them.
What is one thing you feel your life is missing?
Honestly, I don’t think I am missing anything. I’m learning to accept myself where I am. You can’t constantly worry about the things you can’t see and control. Trust and know that growth and blessings come with time and patience.
What’s something everyone should experience at least once in their life?
I think everyone should experience pure genuine happiness. I think in society a lot of people walk around with a mask just to hide the pain, but that’s not healthy. Mental health is an important thing to protect. No one should go their whole life miserable due to past pain and traumas, we’re too embarrassed or scared to speak up about.
How can everyone keep in contact with you on social media?
I mainly use Instagram and Snapchat. You can follow me on Instagram @_.jessiemae for all of content, events and booking information. My Snapchat is @qveen.j for all of my behind the scenes and lifestyle posts.
