    • Jessica: (On music) One of my favorite things about Los Angeles is the music scene. There are so many venues you can check out a great band on any night of the week. The Greek Theatre is definitely a favorite of mine because it's up in the hills and set apart from the bustling Hollywood streets. They have stadium seating outside with huge screens so the group in the back row can still feel like they're a part of the show.

    • Jessica: (On eating organic) There is a huge organic movement right now(September 2008) and I love it. I try to show my mom and dad that this is my lifestyle right now and my mom shops organic sometimes. But, you have to find what works for you.

    • Jessica (On staying fit and eating right) Right now (September 2008), my goal is actually to put on a little bit of weight. But, when a work schedule gets crazy and I am an absolute workaholic who loves to work out and get energy from it that when I don't get to work out I feel frail and especially coming from a sports background where my body is naturally muscular. So, when I don't get to work out then I miss it, I want that lean muscle mass and I want to get it back.

    • Jessica: (On the advice she would give to someone who wants to be like her) Know that there is no limit to how high you can travel and how high you can go with whatever you want to do. If you are living in a small town, you have a huge family and you feel like you are one of many then know who you are and set yourself apart. Don't ever be pushed back by someone who doesn't believe in you, believe in yourself. That is all that matters. Just get out there and get the knowledge for the career, for the choices that you want because you can never learn enough. That's the beauty of life, its changing and learning more about how the world works and how people work and if you know that then know that there is no end to what you can do.

    • Jessica: (On what style means to her) To me, being stylish or style in general is about confidence. If what you are wearing, if it fits on you and if it makes you feel like a women. Every day when I get up and get ready, I ask myself who do I want to be today?
