About MeMy name is Samantha Amanda. I am 23 years old. I was born in the lovely city of New York...where there is always gateways for opportunity. I was raised in New York and partially in the Virgin Islands as a child. Continuously mistaken for a West African woman due to my strong features, but I come from a Caribbean background. My dad is from Grenada, the lovely Isle of Spice and my mom is from sweet sweet Antigua. As a child I always had a passion for colors, fashions, creativity, and art. As a teenager many people encouraged me to consider modeling, but coming from a family where everyone is a doctor, computer engineer, nurse and etc...my family definitely didn't want to discourage me from being a model but at the same time they didn't want me to miss out on my other dreams! Currently I'm studying Pharmacology in school, graduating in May '11, working as a retail makeup artist, still pushing modeling and accomplishing all my short term goals. I feel that when you're motivated anything is possible! I've been modeling for 2 yrs now and I am very passionate about it and I've learned so much about myself as well. It's a learning experience, and its definitely way more than getting dolled up in front of a camera for nice pics to put on facebook...it's art and you have to love what you do! I feel that anyone who is passionate about what they love to do, it shows in their work. I definitely won't stop until I see my name in flashing lights and I know every dream can become a reality with hard work and perserverance.
