A Belizean residing in Punta Gorda has made it to the cover of the United Kingdom’s popular, “Love” magazine.
Her name is Joyjah Estrada and she was photographed by Kendall Jenner, an American fashion model and television personality, originally known for appearing in the E! reality television show, “Keeping up with the Kardashians.”
This is what Jenner had to say about the young woman who had studied at the Toledo Community College: “I loved how committed Joyjah was to the project. She flew in from Belize, had all these visa problems and then was a dream to shoot. She has that amazing face, all those freckles, and she seemed so genuinely excited to be there. She got the best time of day, the golden hour just as the sun was setting, and she brought along a Kylie Lip Care, which is my little sister’s line. She was really, really sweet.”
Joyjah who has more than 130, 000 followers on Instagram, which is almost half the population of Belize, posted to Facebook, “This entire experience has been more than amazing from the day I posted my application for #loveme17 to now..”
She continued, “I’ve been blessed with so many amazing hearts across the globe supporting me and my big dreams, my Belizean family was especially a HUGE part of this journey.”
“I cried happy tears every day before I even knew I was one of the top 20 finalists be photographed by Kendall. I already felt like a winner,” she posted.
