Even though she is just starting out, Jaslene Gonzalez is best known in the United States as a top Latina fashion model. Jaslene became famous all over the world when her stunning beauty won her the top prize on a reality TV show. However, she is most proud of her Puerto Rican roots and the fact that she grew up in a big, close-knit family in Chicago. As a young girl, Jaslene and her aunt would compete in local beauty pageants. She was interested in fashion from a young age. Her large family was very close to her, and on the weekends, everyone would get together at her grandmother’s house.
