The Life of Jessica Alba
“The most important thing I have learned in life was that being a teenager wasn’t forever. I had a hard time being a teenager”(Jessica Alba). Everyone has a hard time going through high school, even Jessica Marie Alba, aka Sky Angel, Albz. Jessica was born in Pomona, California on April 28, 1981.
Jessica’s dad is a real estate agent, and her mother is a housewife, she also has one sibling. Jessica is an American television and film actress. Jessica started working in front of cameras in the mid- 1990’s, appearing in commercials and small roles in films. She began her television and movie appearances at the age of 13 in Camp nowhere and The Secret World of Alex Mack. Although, Jessica has so much faith inside her, she will never give up on anything.
I’m going to prove that Jessica is an idol; she can inspire little kids to become stars. She can give them advice, and give them steps to be where they want to get in life. During childhood, she suffered from collapsed lungs twice, had pneumonia 5 times a year, as well as a ruptured appendix and a tonsillar cyst(Jessica Alba1). In addition, Jessica was isolated from her friends from school because she was always at the hospital for her illness, no one knew her well enough to even comfort her. Her family were the only people that she could go too. Jessica describes her family “very conservative”.
Jessica’s family is very traditional and catholic, Latin family. Her father’s Air force career took the family to Biloxi, Mississippi and Del Rio, Texas before settling back in California when she was nine year old (Jessica Alba2). Jessica’s parents were the ones who got her all started about picking out her career choice. Jessica took her first acting class when she was twelve years old, nine months later she got an agent. Jessica’s first big break was appeared in the Nickelodeon series.
She should be honored she got that chance, and that she has talent. Anyone would die to be like her, or to be where she is now. However, everyone has some kind of achievements in their lives, whether you won a prize or you just succeeded in something. Jessica Alba got nominated/won so many awards throughout her life. She won various awards for her acting, including the Choice Actress Teen Choice Award and Saturn Award for Best Actress on Television. She got very popular throughout the years.
She also won Breakout star of the Year (2001), TV-Choice Actress (2001) and Sexiest Performance (2006). She doesn’t get awards for any reason, by her getting awards it makes her more reliable and aware of what she’s doing. She was rewarded many awards including ALMA Awards, TV Guide Awards, and more for her role in “Dark Angel”. She was voted 1st by FHM magazine in “FHM Sexiest 100(2006), and listen as “Best Female” by Star magazine. Jessica got third place on E’s “101 Sexiest Bodies”.
Also becomes second place in Mazim magazine’s “Hot 100(2006)(Awards1).She’s inspiring others, to succeed and to always try their best. People are not going to win at everything, and that’s okay. Sometimes you just have to lose a little, before you gain some. Jessica said “My own style is probably a mixture of high and low, I’m definitely into sort of layering and I like mystery so I don’t put it all out there” (female).
After graduating high school, Jessica took acting classes from Atlantic Theater Company. Alba rose to prominence as the lead actress in the television series, Dark Angel (2001-2001).She was selected from 1,200 candidates, she played two seasons of Dark Angel and it was also her biggest role ever (Jessica). Jessica played in many movies, “little Fockers”, Machete, Valentine’s Day, just to name a few. Alba later appeared in various films including Honey (2003), Sin City (2005), and Fantastic Four (2005) (Awards2).
Alba did a great deal of work on television. By Jessica Alba playing in all sorts of movies, people are going to start looking up to her. In today’s society, people waste most of their spare time by watching television. They judge people by how they act, and weather if they want to be like them or not. They look at how they dress, and whatever is “cool”. By looking at Jessica Alba, you could just tell she’s a very talented woman.
Furthermore, I’m going to prove that Jessica is an idol; she can inspire little kids to become stars, just like she is. She can give them advice, and give them steps to be where they want to be. Jessica can lead them into a successful lifestyle. I think that Jessica Alba can be a hero because she has all the right traits and characteristics. She seems very proper and has a big heart. Being a hero is different from a celebrity because being a celebrity your being told what to do, and being a hero, your inspiring people for what you’re doing right.
Overall Jessica had a pretty good life, she’s very well- known. Jessica can give children lessons; she can help them and make them successful. She got herself where she is right now, a talented woman. We all admire her; because she proved to us that she’s not just a drama queen celebrity. Learning to never give up, and to always try your hardest is the way to go. It’s easy to say that she made positive choices which provided great opportunities for her.
This opened a lot of doors of success to her and her family.
