Jen Selter attended Roslyn High School, where she got bullied a lot. The thing is, Jen wasn’t always that seemingly perfect as she is today. Her mother claimed Jen often returned from school with tears in her eyes. As a result, Jen tried everything to keep herself from bullies. She even wore padded bras and crop tops to divert people’s attention from her “not-so-attractive” face.
As Jen became 15 years old, she got an idea. She always thought her nose was too big for her face and convinced her mother to allow her rhinoplasty. Jen stated that this tiny surgery changed her life, and she wanted to further improve her looks. Consequently, Jen started exercising and completely changed her diet and eventually achieved the body she always wished for.
