Jessica Buch is a model, student, volunteer and advocate, and she is also in recovery. She has been the face of Pantene, Covergirl and more. Jessica is currently an undergrad student studying pre-med at Santa Monica College, and she is planning on transferring to UCLA in 2021. 

She recently came out publicly as Intersex, and she is now an Intersex advocate. Diagnosed with CAIS (Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome) at a young age, Jessica’s life and upbringing relative to her body looked very different from the other kids around her, and she was taught to hide her condition for most of her life.

Jessica spends her time studying, hanging out with her dogs, boyfriend, and friends, as well as volunteering with Bless It Bag, and staying active through hiking, pilates, and yoga.
