(As part of our mission to provide accessories that help women "identify their femininity" IdentiFemi utilizes real women models in all of our product shoots. Each model brings a set of skills, experiences, goals, and style preferences that make her amazing! We want to share our amazing models with our customers and blog readers. Rose accompanied our model Kelly to her photo shoot. Rose was kind enough to do an interview with us regarding her thoughts on femininity. Thanks Rose!)
Relationship Status: Single
What are your career aspirations: I want to be a Veterinarian or a Zoo Archaeologist.
Describe your style: [I’m a] tee- shirt and jeans kind of person most of the time, but I like to spice it up with some colorful tops every so often.
Who is your style Icon: I don’t really have one [style icon]. [When I see something inspiring] I kind of go “ohh, I’ll steal that [idea]”
What does femininity mean to you: It means that I can be who I am. I can be a girl and express that I am a girl and do that in a way that makes me feel good, versus the way that society wants me to look.
Have you ever experienced a time when your femininity was challenged: Yes. Like I said, I like to wear tee-shirts and jeans a lot. Every once and a while people will come up to me and say “ohh, you’re looking kind of bummy today.” And it’s like “well, I’m comfy so deal with it!”
Feeling beautiful can be a challenge in today’s world. What things make you feel beautiful? I like to get my hair done and I like to get my nails done which doesn’t always happen as regularly as I would like. But just stuff that makes my body feel better.
What would you say to your younger self: Have a little more fun in high school. It’s not that serious. Go to that party.
How do you stay confident? I try to stay positive and recognize when I’ve done good things and give myself that credit verses when I’ve done stupid things.
Where do you see yourself in five years? What about ten years? In five years I will still be in school, I know that! And in ten years I will hopefully have some kind of career and not be living out of my parent’s house.
Thanks for the awesome interview Rose! If you love our "Model Spotlight" series as much as we do, be sure to tune in every Friday and hear from a new IdentiFemi Model.
