Jeyza, 21, from Fayetteville, North Carolina, has a rare genetic skin condition called lamellar ichthyosis which causes her skin to shed every 10 to 12 days, creating a scale-like texture. But Jeyza says she looks at herself as a "victor not a victim" and has been wowing casting agents, winning big commissions with national brands like Target. In this film we see Jeyza in New York during fashion week for a shoot with Glamour UK - the first shoot she has produced herself. We see Jeyza working with a team of creatives to bring her 70s inspired vision to reality.
