Behind the scene video of a Nike Japan photo shoot featuring model Jessica Michibata. In general her talks are about working hard to reach your dream.
Michibata was born in Fukui Prefecture, Japan, to an Argentine father and an Italian mother of Japanese descent. Her real name is Jessica Celeste González Almada, I guess she adopted her surname from her maternal grandparents.
She has two sisters (Karen and Angelica) who are also fashion models in Japan. Jessica is arguably the most popular judging by the number of endorsements.
Michibata became a regular in triathlon circuit after making her début in Australia last year. Nike probably chose her for this campaign because of that.
Lace Up, Save Lives is a NIKE campaign to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS in Africa. The promotion video features some of the world’s top football players along with tennis ace Maria Sharapova and basketball star Kobe Bryant.
