Jessica Sauer - Summer 2010 All About Cabo Girl
Why and how did you get into modeling?
I did a
fashion show to raise money for abused animals. And then
I became their spokesmodel. That's how it all started.
What are your past modeling achievements and/or highlights?
I had the honor of being a part of New York Fashion Week. This was my 4th show...in one year!
It's amazing to be able to tell a story with your runway walk
about the personality of the designer. I always ask the designer - what
do you want this dress to say about you? That is my secret!
When I think of Mexico, I think of ...
Vacation, rest, the different culture. I
just love meeting new people and learning about how they live.
Why do you think other people should visit Mexico?
People should visit Mexico for the great people and
food. It would be a great family vacation.
Why did you pick Autism Mexico?

What do you hope to achieve through your modeling and partnering with All About Cabo?
I want to
inspire others to stand for something, to help others achieve their
dreams, to share and help no matter how small or how big. It makes you
proud. Even if I can only
change or make one person smile I will be happy. My motto is "One voice, One child, One
Anything special we should know about you?

just a normal 18 year old with high standards and great morals. I just love the simple life. I am just as
happy watching a movie with my family. My family is important to me. They support me 100%.
Do you speak any other languages?
I have taken 3 years of sign lanuage because that is how my bother first started speaking. I will be learning Spanish since
I am in a movie that is doing both an English and a Spanish version.
