Meet Luvabull Jessica Ba.
23 / November 10
Park Ridge, IL
Aveda Institute Chicago
Since I was five years old I have been studying ballet, tap and jazz. I danced competitively throughout high school on a State Championship dance team which inspired me to go further with my dancing career. Also, in high school, I started to dance and model in the Midwest Beauty Shows in Chicago as well as the International Beauty Shows in New York. In 2005 I danced in the Thanksgiving Day Parade in Chicago. From there, I went on to dance one year with the Chicago Shamrox Indoor Lacrosse Team and had the honor to attend Pro Dance in Palm Springs, California. In 2008, I was an Adrenaline Rush dancer for the Chicago Rush Arena Football team.
To be happy and successful in all I set out to do and hopefully one day to have a beautiful family of my own.
