How did you get interested in modeling?
Amy Rose: I first became interested in modeling about my junior year of high school. However, I didn’t actually start pursuing it until after my high school graduation in 2008.
To date: What has been your favorite photo shoot and why?
Amy Rose: Hmm. That’s a hard one. I’d have to say my favorite photo shoot so far was when I was shooting on the soft sands and clear beaches in Cancun, Mexico. It was so much fun posing in front of the camera while I heard the waves crashing and sand between my toes; it was truly paradise.
Were you always confident in front of the camera, or was it something that you had to get used to?
Amy Rose: It was definitely something I had to get used to and work up to. When I first started modeling, I was very shy and unsure of what to do in front of the camera. But it’s like anything else: It takes practice. So the more I shot, the more comfortable I started to feel, and the more I started to flow from one pose to another.
Before modeling, you earned an associate degree of applied science in baking and pastry arts. Why did you decide to study that, and what was it like working in that industry?
Amy Rose: Yes. I decided to study baking and pastry arts because baking had always been a passion of mine and something I enjoyed doing. All throughout middle school and high school, I took culinary classes, but it wasn’t until high school that I decided to go the baking route instead of just culinary. I loved being able to create art out of food and the joy it brought on people’s faces when they saw their cake for the first time.
What was the hardest part of transitioning from baking and pastry arts to modeling?
Amy Rose: I don’t think there was necessarily a hard part in transitioning from baking and pastry into modeling, as to me–both are a form of art and expression. It was a change in the fact that I had to start expressing myself through my body instead of designs on a cake or dessert. And also that I had to relearn a whole new industry and figure out how to also be successful in it.
How do you handle criticism and negativity that is directed towards you?
Amy Rose: I simply ignore it. Helpful criticism is okay and I accept it–however any negativity people tend to give out, just shows their character, not mine. When other people say negative remarks, it’s not my problem–it’s theirs. I want to see everyone succeed. The people who are negative all the time towards others just shows that they are not truly happy with themselves. They should work on their own happiness first–before they try to ruin someone else’s.
In your opinion: What is the biggest misconception about modeling?
Amy Rose: I think the biggest misconception about modeling is that it’s easy and isn’t hard work. That “we just stand there and look pretty.” There is a lot more that goes into that. We have to make sure that we are always in shape by working out, our hair, and makeup is always looking good. And the fact that sometimes we have to be in the most uncomfortable positions to get the right shot for the picture. Not every pose we do is easy and though we may make it look like it is comfortable, we are just waiting until we can get out from that pose! Also, some locations that we shoot at–are not the easiest to get to. There are many hard hikes, jumps, crawling, and weaving we have to do just to get to that perfect location to shoot.
What do you want people to think of you (e.g. your brand) when they see or hear about you?
Amy Rose: I want people to see me and think that I am a beautiful person; not only on just the outside, but especially the inside too. I want to inspire people to achieve their own dreams and goals. I want them to believe that they can achieve anything they put their mind to–by watching me work hard towards mine. I would love for someone to come up to me and say, “Because of you, I never gave up.” When I inspire others, it inspires me more.
Share a piece of advice that has greatly benefited you in your life?
Amy Rose: A quote that I love to go by is “Nothing works unless you do.” That has greatly benefited me and my life because it reminds me that I have to work hard for anything I want. If you aren’t working towards something, how will you ever get there?
What can people expect from you for the rest of 2014 and onward?
Amy Rose: Well, I recently had a feature with Playboy Mexico! So everyone should go check that out at playboy.com.mx ! And as for 2014 and onward, people should definitely look out for me in 2015.
