Samantha Rose, the perfectionist. by Daragott

I've had the pleasure to know Samantha on Myspace. when she was 15 years old. When I saw her profile, and her pictures, I knew she was not like many other teens. She was different by the quality of her pictures, and different also with all the different poses and background she used to make her photos better and better. At that time, I realized I had found a perfectionist.

X-centic- Samantha, how would you describe yourself? Tell me about yourself. Samantha- I would simply describe myself as Samantha Rose. I'm myself & that's all I ever wish to be. My lifestyle is Straight-Edge which is a lifestyle I've lead for 3 years. I am pansexual & a big supporter of LGBT. I'm a big My Chemical Romance fan. I adore bizarre styles & looks. I find them beautiful. X-centic- Tell me about your family. Samantha- There's not much to tell & it's something that still hurts to talk about honestly. I come from a broken family. I lost my dad in 2010 & he happened to be the person I felt understood me most. X-centic- What sort of childhood you had? Samantha- I had a bad childhood. Started with pills & drinking at an earlier age. Had to deal with bullying which led straight into extreme depression & self harm. I don't think anybody should have to deal with that the way I did. X-centic- Does your family and friends support your modeling? Samantha- I have the most amazing friends & best friends a person could ever ask for. They've been there every step of the way & I don't know what I'd ever do without them especially Stetson. My family is starting to accept it a little more but my aunt was the first to actually support the dream & not put me down about it. X-centic- Tell me a story from your childhood. Samantha- One I remember so well is a day at the beach I had with my dad, sister & my brother. My brother & I had found a crab hole although we didn't believe it was a crab hole since it was so tiny. We decided to see what was in it so we stuck a stick into the hole & started poking around in it & somehow a huge crab pops out & starts chasing my sister. Lmfao. I can't even.. My dad was yelling at my brother & I but it was so worth it.

X-centic- How would a good friend describe you? Samantha- That is something you'd have to ask one of them. The only person that knows me well enough to answer that would be Stetson. X-centic- Why do you want to be a model? Samantha- I've actually asked myself this many times over the years & it's no secret, sometimes I feel as if I don't belong in the modeling world. I don't want to lose myself the same way many others seem to. I guess I just want to be myself & let others know even if nobody accepts you for who you are or what you do atleast you're not a fake pretending to be somebody or something you're not. I just want to be somebody people remember when they feel like giving up. X-centic- What are the good qualities a future model must have and must develop? Samantha- I'd say the most important thing is how you treat others. Without a fanbase, it's hard to be a model & get somewhere. This is why I appreciate everything & all the support I've had. Other good qualities are variety & creativity. Be unafraid to try different things.

X-centic- What according to you is the biggest problem a future model will have to face? Samantha- The biggest is the negative opinions & the hate. Even I would like to rip people's faces off but I could never improve myself by returning that hate. If people like me, I'm flattered. If they don't, I'm doing something right. In the end, all that matters is what you think. X-centic- Do you have any limitations? Would you model any kind of clothing at all? Samantha- I guess everybody has limitations. I would never ever model regular clothes, jeans, etc.. It's not me. My perfect attire is showing skin. It's not because I love the attention or because I'm a "whore" it's because for once in my life, I'm living for myself not everybody else or their opinions. I was bullied for my weight & my skin color my entire life. I overcame that the first time went to a shooting, said 'fuck it', stripped down & posted that shit. X-centic- Describe the atmosphere when you're on a shoot. Do you play music? Do you talk with the photographer between shots? Samantha- Multiple shootings have had music being played but I still do have casual conversations with the photographers. A lot of the photographers are extremely funny & I love funny people. It's a great atmosphere. X-centic- Describe the relationship that should exist between you and a photographer. Samantha- The relationships between a model & photographer, should be professional. I do understand models sometimes date & get involved with photographers but that should stay in the personal part of the life & never get involved between the work. X-centic- If you could choose, what would you be doing 10 years from now? Samantha- Hopefully the same thing I'm doing now. Inspiring people to never give up no matter how hard the situation is. X-centic- What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progress in this field? Samantha- My biggest goal has been accomplished. I can die a very happy person. All I wanted was to make a difference for atleast one person. Just knowing I've helped somebody is the greatest thing in the world. X-centic- What has been your favorite shoot / campaign / work to date?

Samantha- I don't think I've had a favorite. I've learned so many things from everything I've done so far & I had a great time doing so. X-centic- Was modeling something you always wanted to do, or did it just kinda happen? Samantha- It just kinda happened. I wasn't expecting to do it. Taking photos was my way of escaping the world & it just so happened it's a world I was meant to be apart of. X-centic- What is your dream photographer to work with? Why? Samantha- Jill Hart is my dream photographer to work with. She's worked with the incredible model NiKKiNeVeRMORe & she is an extremely talented photographer. Her work, her ideas, just everything she's done is that amazing.

X-centic- Who is your celebrity crush? Samantha- My celebrity crush is Austin Carlile from Of Mice & Men. X-centic- Who is your model inspiration and why? Samantha- My model inspiration happens to be a musician mostly that I look up to greatly, Gerard Way. He's this truly beautiful being. His quotes, his songs, what he stands for. X-centic- Do you have a hair stylist and a make up artist when you have a photo shooting? Samantha- I am the hair stylist & make-up artist for my photo shoots 99% of the time Samantha works with different photographers: Micheal Cuebas and Anthony Cuebas freom Cuebas Digital Photography: Website: On Mayhem: David W.
