Jessi is wearing magnetics earrings
I am very proud to present Jessica, the first model who was part of my launch of this online shop. Jessi has surprised me in many ways, regardless of how dazzled I am by her natural beauty and red hair. Inside Jessi I found a happy, generous, strong, intelligent human being with a zest for life. She is an athlete, a lifeguard, a math teacher, a model, a hospital employee, and a student, all this with tons of passion. I can only say: Power woman!
Jessica was born in a small town near Berlin and is 25 years old. She is currently writing her master's thesis in sports science at HU and also works in the outpatient sports medicine clinic at La Charité. Her love for the sport does not come from anywhere: she was a competitive lifeguard for years and participated in competitions in different parts of the world, where she won some awards. Because of studying and working, she unfortunately does not have time to continue doing this with as much ambition.
Despite her long time in chlorinated water, Jessi managed to take good care of her hair and grow it down to hip height over the years. In the following years, she first learned about hair donations; but then she wanted to donate much more than the 25 cm required. In the summer of 2019, her hair was longer, so she planned to donate about 40 cm. in the Facebook group “Creative Berlin”. She received a response she never expected and suddenly there were around 15 photographers with whom she had to plan different sessions. After the last session in January 2020, she directed her hand towards the scissors and the cut braid was a little longer than planned: 50 cm. She was really elated to finally have short hair and at the same time she was satisfied that she could do something good. The wig made from her hair is intended for a child with cancer. For Jessi, it was important to choose an organization where the children did not have to pay anything for the wig.
"I believe that a real hair wig can restore some normality to children in everyday life and that when they look in the mirror, at least sometimes they see 'themselves' first rather than the disease."

My interview with Jessi
How would you describe yourself in one word?
What is your idea of happiness?
I believe that being happy means for me to be satisfied with what you do and what you have achieved.
What is your passion?
I've been tutoring math for almost 10 years and I can't help it. I really enjoy individual teaching and am sometimes happier from my students' good grades than they are.
What was the happiest moment of your life?
That was Friday night when my nephew was born and I saw my sister with him in my arms for the first time.
What kind of women or people inspire you the most?
Women or people who do not expect their happiness, but work hard to achieve their goal.
What are the 3 things you value the most in a person?
Trust, cordiality and openness to the world.
If you could start over, what would you change?
Spontaneously, I could certainly list a few things that I would do differently, but deep down, I know that everything I have experienced has shaped me and made me who I am now.
What things do you want to see in the future?
As for myself, I would like to see where I will really end up professionally.
In relation to the world, I would like to see if we can still do it; if we can keep our planet and one day make peace.
What does jewelry mean to you?
I love wearing jewelry, really from head to toe in summer. For me, earrings, necklaces, rings, etc. they are quite delicate, so that I can carry everything together without being too much. I also love the idea of inheriting jewelry, because then you always have something of your loved ones "with you" and immediately associate a memory with the jewelry.
Do you have any anecdotes, stories or memories regarding jewelry?
Except for her wedding ring, my mother no longer wears jewelry. She kept necklaces and earrings that she used to wear or received as gifts in a box decorated with shells. As a child, I loved browsing through it and wanted to discover something new every time I looked. It was really like a little treasure to me.
