Hello March! We received this month with open arms and enthusiasm because Spring is around the corner. Of course, we always want to be the first to get our glossy favorite magazine (Ocean Drive) and see which celebrity in on the cover.
This month, our favorite local magazine featured rising supermodel and Instagram star Jasmine Sanders, and she absolutely rocks the cover!
Inside the sleek spread, the 26-year-old “Golden Barbie”, with nearly 3 million Instagram followers (can you believe it?) talks frankly about the racial tensions she faced growing up in the south, how her dogs (Bam Bam and Rocky) are enjoying their own rise to fame, and the truth on her relationship with fellow models Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid.
Jasmine also talks about her mother’s unwavering support and her plans to break into the acting and business worlds.
We also have included pull quotes from her interview below and some of the gorgeous images by Mike Rosenthal.
Remember that you can read the whole interview online too, at OceanDrive.com
Jasmine Sanders and her fellow models
On her relationship with fellow models Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid: “People think it can be very catty backstage, but as much as we compete trying to get different campaigns and jobs, we’re family back there. I have girls that are pushing me and telling me, ‘Hey, you got this. We all have nerves—you got this. You look beautiful. Let’s do it.’”
Goals, Cyber-bullying and Childhood
On her future career goals: “I want to begin to be more of a businesswoman. I want to come out with some fun products and merchandise, and I also want to get into acting.”
On how she handles negativity online: “If there’s anything negative written, I delete it because I don’t want them [her fans] to go into a battle with someone who begins to do any type of cyberbullying. The internet is so hurtful sometimes and it can be one click that changes somebody’s life.”
