Plenty of people think they look like a celebrity, but Houston's Janice Garay really does look like one - Jennifer Lopez.
I'm in tears of joy right now for all these opportunities that are being sent my way! I wish I could announce but not just yet, I remember praying for a miracle, I kept asking god to give me strength to hold on and not give up no matter what was being thrown my way. No matter how heart broken I was, friendships I've lost throughout the years or just struggling at home financially! It's hard being a single mom...I'll never be embarrassed for my struggles or where I came from because look where it lead me to today! God is so freakin good!!!! 😭🙌🏽🙏🏾 I remember crying in my room on a daily basis feeling miserable because I had no idea where I was going to end up ...I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life until I started working out 3 years ago! Fitness has definitely changed my life, I didn't have rich parents , we didn't have much coming from the valley my parents split when I was a baby and my mom and I moved away to Houston when I was 6...growing up was hard for me to be far away from my father because we had a special bond. But all I knew was I wanted to make my father proud of me! I know in my life growing up I've made mistakes, I didn't always make the right choices and I had my daughter at a young age (19) I'm not perfect what so ever but I do have a good heart! I will always remain humble and just want to show the world no matter how bad ur struggling or whatever it is your going through in life, stay strong, pray, keep grinding, focus on YOU An ur goals because u never know what god will bring your way, he will definitely surprise you! Trust me! He blessed me and opened other doors for me I never thought would be possible! And I definitely can't wait to share my journey with all of you! 🙏🏾💓 - JAY #NewBeginnings #Blessed #GodIsGood #InspireOthers
The 28-year-old, who often gets mistaken for Jenny from the Block, doesn't mind the resemblance since she's been a huge fan of Lopez's for years, but wants people to know she is not setting out to look like J.Lo.
In fact, there is one slight difference between the two - Janice goes to the gym a bit more than Jennifer.
Janice is so ripped that people have made memes about her.
⚡️100k!? 😱😱😱 💓🙌🏽🙌🏽🤘🏽I'm so speechless, I want to thank all of my followers/fans/friends/family and even the haters for the love an support! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 Now I am worldwide being shown on all the Hispanic channels, radio stations, blogs, all over social media! 😩This is where it all started with this meme About 4 weeks ago LOL, then more memes were being made shortly after that, most of my pictures were popping on the explore page all the time apparently, people assuming I was @jlo but little did they know I'm a Figure Competitor That lives in Houston, Tx name "JAY" not JLO. Lol I appreciate everyone who stands up for me with all this negativity going around, I see your comments trust me I just don't have the time to reply back to everyone to say TY, but now I'm telling all of you🙏🏾💓! As you know I'm in prep getting ready to hit the stage in L.A California on July 22nd - LA Championships I worked my ass off every single day for this show no matter what was going on in my life (good&Bad) or how I was feeling...I want everyone to notice me for my dedication An hard work for bodybuilding not some "want to be jlo" that people claim of me to be . Even thow, I do have the most respect and love for Jennifer Lopez , people who know me know I admire her An look up to her ever Since the movie Selena came out. I keep getting asked "how do you deal with all this negativity and hate jay?" well because I'm so focused on my own goals An dreams that no matter what is being thrown my way, it won't ever break me because I've been through worst situations that most of you will never know! That's why I remain humble, I'm just a girl from Houston trying to make it big in the fitness industry to become Ms. Figure Olympia! Just Remember, anything is possible, you have to work for what you want, invest and stay away from distractions and negative people in your life, nobody will ever understand but that's okay your doing this for you, not them so in the end who cares what people have to say about you. I'm over here being hated so much but god is blessing me with opportunities in my life! So who is really Winning?! 🤷🏽♀️💪🏽🙏🏾💓 Love you all! Thx again! - Jay 🖤
