Jordyn Woods won’t be “defined” by the “bad things” that happen to her.
The 22-year-old reality star — who sparked a scandal in February when she was caught kissing friend Khloé Kardashian’s then-partner Tristan Thompson — learned a lot about herself in the way she dealt with the tragic death of her father, John Woods, who died at the hands of cancer in January 2017.
Woods reflected on the moment in a candid 22-minute video when launching her YouTube channel.
She said: “I had a very triggering moment in my journey of losing my father, which completely ignited something within my body. Even though it was probably the worst thing I had to go through, I learned that the bad things that happen to you don’t have to define you.
“Even though they do define your character, who you are, you always have to learn and grow through it.”
One way Woods coped was to focus on her health and exercise more.
She said: “My trigger was getting myself to the gym. That completely changed my life, and that moment got me to the gym.
“Gym became my therapy. Gym became the thing I looked forward to, and not only was it helping me emotionally; it was physically changing my body and making me feel better.”
But the model admitted she was targeted with cruel comments when she started to get fitter.
