Jordis is my stage name. I acquired the name as a tribute to my favorite singer: Jordis Unga.
I am a 31-year old single mother of three beautiful children, ages 7, 10 and 15. I separated from my husband six years ago and have spent the time since focusing on my health and my children. Everything I do is for my family. They mean the world to me.
I've always wanted to be a model. Ever since I saw the Barbizon ads in the magazines as a child, I have been entranced by the modeling world. I have done a few other photo shoots, but I have never actively pursued modeling. However, I am at the stage in my life where it feels like I need to follow my heart and put my all into it; now or never. Being published is a dream come true for me!
Following my heart has never led me astray. My other great childhood dream was to become a teacher. I followed that passion and took it to college with me. I have obtained two Associate degrees, one with a concentration in Early Childhood Education. I worked as an Early Childhood Educator for six years. I absolutely loved that job. Unfortunately, my physical health took a turn for the worst in 2010 and I had to abandon that position due to the lingering pain in my shoulder that I acquired from a car accident. I had laproscopic surgery a few years later to repair my shoulder injury. I never returned to the Early Childhood field, but young children are still one of my greatest passions.
After the accident I had to find new outlets to be able to follow my other passions, which include portrait sketching, photography, editing photos, designing original images and singing. I am a very artistic person and I am good at whatever I pour my heart and soul into. I have designed logos, posters, flyers, pamphlets, business cards and web banners for a few different personal and business associates. I want to expand my hobbies into a business in the future - but for now it is just for fun.
I donate my time and skills for free to a non-profit organization, created in my younger brother's name. My little brother passed away in 2012, at 19 years old. The foundation's missions include providing assistance to other youth in need in an attempt save other precious young lives. We were recently founded and our organization is beginning to come together nicely.
I am currently attending college, again, full-time at an online University. My goal is to complete my Bachelor's Degree in Information Technology. My long-term plan is to become a Professional Web Designer. I am slightly more than half-way there. As long as I can continue to fund my education, my anticipated graduation date will be at the end of 2015. I can't wait to start this new chapter of my life!
After my accident and the tragic death of my teenage brother, I have learned to appreciate the joys in life. Suffering has taught me that you cannot take anything for granted. I try to make the most out of every moment. I want my children to see that I endured. I want them to be proud of me and, most importantly I want them to know that if you are true to yourself, you can make your dreams happen.
I have two tattoos, a small side profile of a butterfly on my belly above and to the left (or right if you are looking at me) of my belly button; and My daughter's name on my ankle (Destiny). The only piercing I have kept is the normal ear piercings in my lobes (one on each side). I previously had worn jewelry in my nose, tongue and belly button but have taken them all out some time ago.
I have joined model mayhem to gain exposure and connect with people in hopes of doing some photo shoots locally.
If you'd like to contact me the best way to reach me is to shoot me a message to my facebook page (above).
