Our motto is we build, train, and develop from the inside. We believe God's

WE ARE DIFFERENT FROM THE REST
| MEET THE CEO
Jearlean Taylor is a Baltimore native with a powerful story. Jearlean grew up in a loving family with
both parents in southwest Baltimore City. She is a twin and the fourth child of her parents. She has
three sisters and two brothers.
Jearlean was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer at the early age of three, additional being left with
ostomy bags for rest of her life. From that point on, her life would be nothing short of a miracle.
Jearlean’s life has proven to be a journey of unexpected challenges. “Pretty Girl Blues” is a recollection
of her journey.
In her autobiography, Jearlean gives you an in-depth view of her life as she viewed it from the “inside
out”. Her outward appearance is one of beauty, high fashion, grace and charm. Her inward existence
was one of low self-esteem, shame, insecurity and complex, chronic medical complications. While
others appeared to be living a “normal life”, Jearlean struggled with self-pity, unhappiness, depression
and low self-esteem. Jearlean found it hard, embarrassing and painful to be considered “different”.
Journal writing became the impetus of her internal healing.
“Pretty Girl Blues” is different from many autobiographies. Jearlean’s candidness and transparency will
shock some, while inspiring and empowering others. The message she wants to convey in her
autobiography is that miracles still happen. Jearlean is a believer of Jesus Christ and lives by the
scripture Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper
you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
By sharing her story, Jearlean desires to inform readers that while life will “happen” to all of us, we all
have the power inside to survive and overcome any obstacle that presents itself.
“Pretty Girl Blues” is an inspiring story of hope. It is a detailed story of how a person shifted from being
a victim to being a victor. It is encouraging to readers to know that while change does not happen
overnight, it can and will happen for anyone who desires to conquer and overcome their challenges.
Jearlean Taylor is an author, motivational speaker, fashion model, ostomy inspirer, and mentor. She
has been a model for over 18 years (with two ostomy bags). Her outer appearance does not show the
physical condition that she lives with daily. As a result of her passion for modeling and her reality of
cancer, Jearlean decided to open a Christian centered modeling company, J & Company Christian
Modeling, in 2006. Their motto is “we build, train, and develop from the inside out”.
