Despite the Florida-native's success, Jackson has only competed in the sport for FOUR MONTHS!

To be fair, the 25-year-old is no novice. According to TeamUSA.org, she has been an "inline speed skater for 15 years," and was also a jammer in roller derby.

Even after securing a spot on the U.S. team, Jackson still considers herself a "newbie" who "wasn't expecting" to do so well. She confessed:

Is This New Snow White Movie One Big Fat Joke?! See The Body Shaming Ad That Has Women Saying WTF!

If you haven't heard of the upcoming animated film Red Shoes And The 7 Dwarfs, we're not surprised.

It isn't Disney or Pixar or Dreamworks but rather a small South Korean studio called Locus, which lists its release as some time in 2018.

The film is English language, featuring the voice talent of Chloë Grace Moretz, Gina Gershon, and Jim Rash, but we don't even know if there's a planned release in the U.S. at all.

Model Tess Holliday spotted the ad and had to share her thoughts:

The actress joined a skit parodying plot twists that happen in classic Korean TV dramas — the kind of overly dramatic stuff like a family situation searching for the "real father," or siblings who have long interpersonal battles!

Think of them as being similar to American soap operas in some ways — and very ripe for parody!
