The phrase ‘never give up on your dream’ sounds cliché, but it remains a dare to chase their life’s aspirations for many. A good example is Kathy Jacobs, who recently got her biggest breakthrough. The 57-Year-Old, who stands at 5’3, is an actress, entrepreneur, and now a model living in California. Kathy has proved that bodies will remain ageless as long as souls are delighted.
While she has established a place for herself in the modeling industry, she encourages women of diverse shapes, sizes, and ages to go after their dreams no matter how old they are.

She got into the contest and attained a position among six finalists out of thirteen participants. It will be safe to say that her attitude and positive energy made her stand out and create history.
Just When Kathy's Sports Illustrated photos went viral, she got bombarded with messages asking for diet, workout, and skincare advice.

You know it’s not like I’m ready to roll over and play dead because I’ve still got a lot more inside of me to do.” Kathy had said on YouTube. In an interview, Kathy had also spoken about how she’s making an impact on younger girls. She stated: “I feel like being in this magazine not only helps other women my age but younger girls too. Everyone’s so terrified about getting older.”

I’m going to reward myself today for trying! Hope it helps you too!!” In a separate Instagram post, Kathy expressed her joy at walking the red carpet for the first time at 57 years old.
