Indiana, Pennsylvania. The so-called Christmas Tree Capital Of The World.
With a population of close to 14,000, Indiana, Pennsylvania is home to one of the largest number of Christmas tree farms, coal mining, natural gas production and commercial drilling in the country, in the form of S.W. Jack Drilling Company. Home of Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) and the birthplace and hometown of “It’s a Wonderful Life” actor, Jimmy Stewart, Indiana has a special and quaint small-town All-American feel to it that is just so welcoming and unique all it’s own.
Other notables such as three-time PGA winner Steve Wheatcroft, Patton actor, Sandy McPeak and Bandwagon actress/comedienne Karri Bowman, could fellow Indiana native in runway, fitness and bikini model, Chelsea Bliscik be the new small-town girl to make it big?
Bliscik, a promotional, runway and bikini model, has worked for brands such as Ducati, StubHubLive, Chrysler and Mountain Dew. Currently based in Chicago, the 5’6 blond-haired brown-eyed beauty has also recently ventured in the area of fitness modeling.
Thanks to a slim and lithe figure, Bliscik has a clear and fresh All-American look, attitude and figure set to help her become one of the new faces of fashion and promo modeling. Below is my Q and A with Chelsea as we talk modeling, fashion and who to look your best this season.
