Another driven L.A. girl with a dream, 19-year-old Jasmine Villegas has been acting and pursuing a music career since the tender age of 12. She first caught our eye (and Justin Bieber’s!) in 2010 as in his Baby video. Since then, she’s been going strong appearing on Justin Bieber’s 2010-11 My World Tour, and in campaigns with Microsoft and Sephora. In 2012 she released her first music video for her single Didn’t Mean Ita song dealing with domestic violence and her own painful experiences in an abusive relationship. She’s beautiful, talented, and a great role model for teen girls—we can’t wait for her first album to drop!
