London: Pop diva Jennifer Lopez is known for her fabulous figure and glamorous clothes, but there was a time when she had neither.
But the `Waiting For Tonight` hitmaker is not ashamed of that past as she unveiled the picture of herself as a pigtailed 10-year-old.
The 40-year-old performer dug into her old family album for the shot, a childhood portrait from her early school days.
The image shows the young JLo wearing plaited pigtails and a checked pinafore and it appears alongside the words, `Be Extraordinary`, reported a news website.
The image is a part of a campaign for the Boys and Girls Clubs Youth Advocacy Campaign.
The star lent her support to the campaign and attended today`s launch with her husband Marc Anthony.
Lopez, whose twins Emme and Max sat the afternoon out, was dressed in a sparklingly mini dress and giggled with delight as she first saw the giant sign.
She credits the club`s `K company` performing arts programme with encouraging her to sing and dance as a young girl.
