She is strikingly beautiful. Supermodel Jessica White may be MaybMarquee at Harry O'selline’s newest spokesperson, but she has a story to tell about her life in the industry and how she wants to reach out and help others. White spoke openly with 2 On Your Side’s Claudine Ewing.

White, 24, started modeling as a teenager in Buffalo. She has appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue six times. You may have seen her in the catwalk of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

White grew up in Buffalo. In her interview, she talks about her personal issues of abuse, how drugs and alcohol almost ended her career.

White is still modeling and will appear in the February 2009 S.I. Swimsuit issue. She says it will surprise some people.

Now that she is living in Buffalo, she plans to build her dream home and open up a mother-modeling agency.

More importantly, she wants to open up a safe haven home for young girls and women who have been abused. It is a passion for White who speaks candidly about making sure it is a project that will be operated very well and make a difference in the lives of women.

Top names have agreed to help with a fundraiser for the project under the Angel Wings Foundation. White says Beyonce, Princess Fergie are just two celebrities who have vowed to help.
