Jessica Gomes is one inspiring woman. With her striking face and fit bombshell body she has graced the cover of many magazines and frequently rocks the David Jones runway as their ambassador. With the launch of THE UPSIDE’s Be You campaign, Jessica has added another accolade to add to her ever-growing list of inspirational exploits.
The Be You campaign celebrates self-acceptance, cultural diversity and individuality and aims to inspire young women to feel comfortable in their own skin. We’re all for empowering women here at Sporteluxe HQ so we chatted to Jessica about the campaign as well as her top beauty tricks and tips to keep her bikini body in shape while she’s on the go.
What does ‘Be You’ mean to you?
To be a trailblazer! To be a warrior! For me, the campaign is about being the real you, the person that you desire in your heart to be. With no fear of what others may think. To love all of you and control your own destiny.
How do you make yourself feel instantly amazing?
I try to appreciate what matters in my life every day. I’m alive. I’m healthy. I have my family and my friends who make me happy!
When do you feel most yourself?
When I’m at home in bed after a shower with no make-up on. Just in my pyjamas writing in my journal.
