Jessica Laine joins The Cool Soror Podcast today. A member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., this fitness model, on-air fitness personality, boxer and health advocate is on a mission to change how people look at wellness. A Decatur, Georgia native, Jessica attended Spelman College where she majored in English and Comparative Women’s Studies. She is currently studying for a Master’s in Public Health in Nutritional Sciences from George Washington University.
During her tenure as a student, many of her peers struggled with obesity. Jessica took an immediate interest in health literacy and began using her talents to help her peers. She became the Student Ambassador for the Wellness Revolution and incorporated fitness boot camps and group sessions along with her personal training to make an impact. Once she began to realize how many lives she touched, her passion only grew.
Jessica founded her company, Fight For Your Life, while she was preparing and training as an amateur boxer for the Olympics. Defeated in her final fight, she pressed forward to continue to share her love for the sport and fitness. She realized that so many people were fighting obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes and many other chronic illnesses. She knew the job had to be done. Through this company, she birthed her nonprofit organization, Beyond The Body, Inc.
This young woman is a pillar of strength for her peers and so many more. Her vibrant spirit and sincere desire for each of us to live healthier lives are evident in this episode. It is only apropos that we name it, “Fight For Your Life” because she is fighting so that we all can be better.
