“As a model, my major focus is (1) being a role model and (2) being fearless. I am a brand, a boss and a business.”
Jessica Shea Zeletes is a model who is all about trying new things! You can find her hanging out on an airplane or reading in Barnes & Nobles. Whether she is traveling to different cities or tasting different foods, Jessica enjoys living life. She loves playing volleyball, flipping through fashion magazines and taking professional photos.
She dreams of becoming an international petite supermodel. Even though she is a petite model, her ultimate goal is to be a Victoria’s Secret model.
“Modeling is my life.”
She hopes to one day walk for designer Philipp Plein. Jessica’s top role models are Hillary Duff, Tyra Banks and Ava Capra from America’s Next Top Model. If she could be a fruit or vegetable, she would be a pineapple because it is tasty, juicy, tarty, and interesting looking with a hardcore in the middle.
Jessica’s style is a mix between chic and eclectic. When she is in Florida, her go to outfit is shorts, a tank top and a pair of Converse shoes. When she visits New York, you can find her wearing a turtleneck, pants and snow boots. She is obsessed with fashion, purses and shoes. Her favorite perfume is Hillary Duff’s With Love.
“Nothing stops me.”
Jessica doesn’t let fear stop her from achieving her goals. Back in January 2017, she was in the airport waiting for her flight to New York when the Fort Lauderdale shooting happened. Instead of panicking and going home, she boarded her flight so that she would be able to compete in the 2017 PLITZS Fashion Marketing’s Emerging Model of the Year. Even with all the stress of the traumatic shooting, her determination pulled her though allowing her to win the petite model of the year.
Kate Citrone is a professional model who has been on the runway too many times to count! She has modeled all over the country including L.A, Savannah, N.Y.C, Orlando & Miami. Being on the runway gives her a rush of adrenaline and makes her feel more alive! Her biggest tip on conquering the runway is to make sure the audience is satisfied. “Your goal is to make the whole room fall in love with you,” she says.
Kate’s dream is to become a high fashion international runway model! She wants to be on the runway every day for the rest of her life! Her next modeling goal is to walk the runway for the London, Milan and Germany fashion shows. If she could walk down the runway with any famous model, it would be with Tyra Banks or Naomi Campbell.
When Kate is not modeling, she is watching a Harry Potter movie or an episode of the Outlander series. If she could be in a movie, she would be in a action movie where she would be a spy or carry a sword like in the Underworld Series!
She loves hanging out in the dance studio and volunteering in her community. Kate dedicates her time volunteering with the Police Athletic League (PAL). One of the volunteer events which combined both of Kate’s hobbies of dancing and volunteering was “Dancing with our PALs,” a spin-off of “Dancing with the Stars.”
Kate’s style is casual. She wears blue / black skinny jeans, a tank top, combat boots and lace-up sandals. Kate collects choker necklaces and anything related to Mickey Mouse! Her favorite desserts are strawberry cheese cake and Ben & Jerry’s chocolate fudge brownie ice cream. If she could be a fruit or vegetable, she would be a zucchini because they make good pies!
