When you first lay eyes on Amber Sym, you undoubtedly see how beautiful she is. But Amber is not your typical model. She’s a talented actress and on top of that, she enjoys music, reading, going to concerts, baking, parkour, wake boarding, and rock climbing. And just in case that wasn’t enough for you, she’s also very funny. You put all those things together, and you get a girl who puts the term “dream girl” to shame.

Justin Marroquin: How did you get into modeling?

Amber Sym: I got into modeling out of the blue. I had a friend who was doing a photo shoot, and had me go along as her chaperone. At the end of her shoot, the photographer asked if I wanted to go back to do my own shoot, so I did. The rest is history.

JM: You are from Michigan (like me), what did you like most about living there?

AS: My favorite thing about living in Michigan was the seasons. Looking back, being able to see, feel, and smell a difference in the time of year was one of those simple pleasures that I often took for granted.

JM: Acting is one of your interests. Tell me more about it?

AS: I got into acting shortly after I moved to Florida. I didn’t really know what I wanted out of life, and since acting interested me, I tried it. Then I was hooked.

JM: With everything you have going on, how do you balance your life?

AS: I don’t really have to try balancing it. Since my work is fun, typically everything evens out.

JM: Do you set goals for yourself?

AS: I used to set a lot of specific goals, but quickly realized that wasn’t a good idea. I wouldn’t meet specifics because circumstances would change in the blink of an eye, so I now just focus on big picture type of goals. Basically, just keep one upping myself, and always getting up when I’m down. As long as I’m happy, I know I’m doing it the way that works best for me.

JM: If you could only pick one of your interests, which one would it be?

AS: Acting.

JM: What is one thing people don’t know about you?

AS: I have a tattoo of a bomb on my inner lip. It’s the logo for Nitro City, and I got it after I had the time of my life going there for Badass with Playboy.

JM: What are you trying to achieve in your life right now?

AS: Right now I’m working on keeping my trajectory in an upward angle.

JM: How do you handle criticism and negativity?

AS: Constructive criticism I like, and sometimes I implement changes because of it. Plain old criticism and negativity I tend to brush off, or use as motivation.

JM: Share a piece of advice that has helped you in your life?

AS: Always say please and thank you, and mean it when you say it.
