Meet our 2013 Red Carpet Fashion Correspondent
Meet Jessica Molina, the winner of the 2013 NCLR ALMA Awards Red Carpet Fashion Correspondent Contest! Raised in Teaneck, New Jersey, Molina’s multicultural surroundings sparked her affinity for seeing worlds collide and her true passion for music, art, fashion, and film. These passions naturally led her to the world of hosting, entertaining, and reporting, but her training has been years in the making. Molina credits her hosting abilities to growing up in a large Puerto Rican family, “To be heard in such a large room, I knew I needed a captivating personality to engage each listener!” From them, she learned the art of storytelling, debating, and cracking jokes, all essential tools in her day-to-day work as a reporter.
This year, Molina contributed her talent to the 2013 NCLR ALMA Awards by reporting live from the red carpet in Pasadena. Molina’s ability to create a relaxed atmosphere for interviewees bolstered fluid conversation and unearthed genuine, exciting content, making her the perfect choice as this year’s Fashion Correspondent. We look forward to watching her career blossom and are excited to see the continued success of this inspiring Latina wherever the road takes her!
