The Fashion Model's Tips for Living Well and Doing Good
Autism Tomorrow Collaborative Bucket Hat
By Cynthia Rowley
Some of us travel for pleasure. Some of us travel for work. And some of us are lucky enough to combine the two into a glamorous life on the road. For model Jacquelyn Jablonski, fashion week is every week. Which makes it particularly important to balance the rewards of travel with a healthy lifestyle. We asked her for some tips on living well and doing good, in the city or on the beach.
Travel is like a reset for me. It’s so important to step out of your routine when you can. I feel so lucky that I have had the opportunity to see and meet so many people all over the world. I always return back to New York inspired and with a clear head.
I work out not only to stay in shape, but for my brain. My mom jokes I’m easier to talk to after I work out. It is a huge stress reliever. I grew up playing sports, so being active is a large part of my life.
I launched the foundation Autism Tomorrow about two years ago. I was inspired to launch the foundation after seeing my family struggle to find programs for my twin brother Tommy as he approached adulthood. Autism Tomorrow focuses on opportunities for adults with autism: finding a job, achieving independent living, and to reaching their fullest potential in an inclusive and supportive society. The designer Cynthia Rowley recently collaborated with us on a bucket hat design where we give 100% of the proceeds to the cause.
I can not be far from the water. I grew up near the beach and the ocean is very therapeutic for me. Also, what’s better than salty beach hair?
FAMILY & FRIENDS
My job requires me to get on a plane, often very last minute, so when I am home I make sure I catch up with the people close to me. Even if I am super tired, I love finding my friends in every city and seeing something new. Life’s too short!
