At 11, Alejandra Torregrosa Jimenez already has a considerable resume as a model and an actress.
A recent winner of the Magnifique Showcase organized by former “America’s Next Top Model” Victoria Henley, the Texas born youth started modeling at age 7 in The Malls of America Model and Talent Search Competition. For that event, she finished as a runner-up in the 5–15-year-old category. Following that initiation into the world of fashion, Alejandra helped her aunt’s photography studio by modeling for an advertisement.
Already initiated into modeling, she took some runway modeling classes and eventual signed with a modeling agency out of Columbia, S.C.
Alejandra then participated in a few other modeling competitions, which led her to being scouted by Henley for Magnfique.
Alejandra’s acting career also has been picking up steam. She has two films set for production later this year.
Outside of acting and modeling, Alejandra is a rising middle school student who loves anime, skateboarding and learning new languages (she speaks English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese and Russian fluently).
With her increased presence in the world of acting and modeling, Alejandra hopes to draw attention to two causes of interest. One is animal well-being, which reflects her love for animals. And because it reflects personal experience, Alejandra wants to raise awareness about brain tumors.
