Name: Jeana Kolson
Hometown: Secane, PA
What’s the best part of being one of the most statuesque people at Penn?
People think I know what I’m doing when I wear absurd clothes.
My complete lack of actual physical grace, and the fact that everyone realizes that immediately upon meeting me.
How glamorous is the life of a “Reliquary” model?
Very glamorous. Especially since I tend to forget to brush my hair, contributing to my senior year “homeless” look.
Any backstage secrets you’re willing to dish?
Lose your shame immediately.
How do you calm your nerves before you strut down the runway?
Usually, you’re just trying to be fully clothed before walking…
If you could strut your stuff to any music you wanted, what would be on the playlist?
That’s easy: anything Lil’ Wayne.
How do you maintain that top-model physique?
Do you have any post-show indulgence?
Multiple Big Azz Margaritas.
Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Luxurious furs and antique jewelry.
Describe your perfect date.
Obviously anything initiated through an unprovoked and suggestive Facebook message.
What is the way to your heart?
Demonstrating the ability to not take yourself seriously. Also, having a babyface helps.
Are you a fashionista or just a pretty face?
More interested in designing and fashion. Modeling was a secondary move, just because I made my designs to fit my measurements.
Are you involved in any clubs or associations at Penn?
My entire Penn experience has centered around multiple positions in D2S. It’s an obsession. I am co-president of “The Society of Room (Penn Chapter)” as well though.
Do you have any athletic prowess?
I used to run track and cross country. But more importantly, I can lick my elbow- real prowess!
