Exclusive! Jennifer Gimenez launches
The project, which came about just months ago, was inspired by a young woman who had been to a whopping 19 treatment centers and was unable to kick her drug habit. After a friend suggested that she share her struggles on a blog, anonymously, she was finally able to break the ice in her sobriety and has been clean ever since.
Jenn, who is the owner and spokesperson of the magazine, hopes that the magazine and stories shared online will inspire others struggling to seek help in any form and realize that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. This isn’t a 12-step program, it’s an anonymous, unedited, raw testament of success.
“It’s for the people. It’s for anyone,” Jenn tells The Examiner of the magazine.
Jenn started off as a model at the ripe young age of 13 and has been in the spotlight ever since. While she never set out to start a magazine, she couldn’t be happier to be involved in such an amazing project. “You never know the reason why you are where you’re at or who you’re angels will be,” she explains. “I believe that we are each other’s angels. For me it was being in Florida that lead me to this golden opportunity.”
