Jenny lives in Seattle, Washington with her mum (who is also her best friend), her dad, and three younger siblings. She is very close to her family, but looks forward to the independence and confidence she'll gain by travelling to the UK.
At sixteen years old, Jenny was an all-American girl, so popular in school that her phone never stopped ringing. On her way back from a basketball game, she was in a serious car accident and spent 19 days in a coma.
With severe fractures and a traumatic brain injury, Jenny was told by doctors that her injuries would probably leave her 'like a vegetable'. But after five years of therapy, daily walking for miles and massive determination, Jenny is currently studying Speech Therapy at the University of Washington and working part-time at a clothing shop - two things her family feared she'd never get to do.
Jenny's done some modelling locally in Seattle. She's always dreamt of following this career, and has the looks and lack of self-consciousness to pull it off.
• Tenacious - Jenny was rejected by America's Next Top Model due to the way she walks. She's determined to show them exactly what they're missing.
• Friendly - On her long daily walks, Jenny talks to everyone she meets and has made lots of friends that way.
• Passionate - Jenny's been known to tell smokers on the street exactly how much harm they are doing to their health.
• Sweet - Jenny describes herself as 'completely boy-crazy', but also very picky. So her current boyfriend is a very lucky guy indeed.
