Joselyn Dumas Speaks On The Challenges Of Being Overweight And Her Decision To Lose Weight


One of the major reasons for losing weight is for a healthier life and actress, Joselyn Dumas is not going to gamble on that.

Tired of struggling with her body image, Joselyn decided to take action. In an interview with Schick Magazine Joselyn says, she’s at a better place now.
