Woman Of The Week: Jordin Sparks

Jordin Sparks is this week’s Woman of the Week simply because I adore her, and for being a healthy example for girls everywhere. Jordin is quintessentially a “Jane of all trades” – she has a highly successful singing career, she writes, acts, was on Broadway and is the youngest contestant ever to win American Idol. She has continued to be a positive role model by speaking out about her healthier habits, too. This past summer, Jordin explained that she didn’t take on any drastic diets, but merely avoided junk food, exercised and made healthier choices. I admire her for choosing to become healthier for herself, rather than for the media. The results speak for themselves – she looks happier than ever. 

“My whole journey has been about self-acceptance. There’s no quick or magical way to lose weight. You just have to do it the natural way — diet and exercise and stick to it — and be able to do it at your own pace.” – Jordin
