NYC supermodel Jena Goldsack is known not only for her striking features, but for her passion for ocean conservation.
Scouted when she was just 17, Jena moved from her home of Cornwall to London, and then to New York City when she now calls home. We sat down with Jena this week and asked her all of our burning questions, in the first of our Monthly Muse series.
