Jessica Lauren is the Founder and CEO of The Miss Abilities Organization, the reigning Ms. Elite Fresh Face Universal 2021 and a Dove Self Esteem Ambassador!
Why do you do what you do?
Jessica is passionate about being an ambassador for The Dove Self Esteem Project. As a mother of three and someone who has struggled with self esteem her entire life, she knows how important it is to begin building self esteem from a young age. She loves speaking to young people and offering workshops to teach others to love themselves for who they are! When not promoting her platform, Jessica loves using her artistic abilities to create works of art promoting mental health awareness and to illustrate children’s books to promote positive messages as well!
What are some projects you are currently working on?
Jessica is currently finishing up illustrations for her third children’s book!
What are your goals for the short-term and long-term?
In the short term, Jessica hopes to offer more virtual self esteem workshops. One of her long term goals is to travel to some of the different countries that she's offered virtual workshops in to meet with the amazing young people she’s worked with.
Who or what inspires you?
Jessica’s three children inspire her every single day. They are strong, intelligent, kind, caring and each making their own positive impact in the world. Each of them care so passionately about the environment, social justice and more and Jessica strives every day to make them proud.
If you could change anything about your industry, what would it be?
As someone who is a parent, contestant, judge and director in the pageant industry, Jessica hopes to see more pageant systems focusing on humanitarianism than a contestants appearance.
What do you plan to do once you cross the millionaire mark?
Jessica has always considered herself to be humble and one day crossing the millionaire mark wouldn’t change that! She plans to continue her humanitarian efforts and trying to make a difference in the world.
