For college I went to Schoolcraft College, in Livonia, Michigan, my major was recording technology, they only offered the 2 year program so I came back to Delaware and I attend Wilmington University off and on studying business currently.
Jchell: What are some of your main interests and hobbies?
Lynn Rose: I'm still very interested writing and producing music under my own label or talent agency . I mainly focus on Pop and R&B music and post the songs on YouTube and Reverbnation etc. But besides that, I also volunteer at my church teaching music there to anyone who wants to learn, so I really enjoy that as well.
Jchell: How long have you been modeling?
Lynn Rose: I first started in 2012.
Jchell: Are you an independent model or an agency model?
Lynn Rose: Currently independent.
Jchell: What was it like starting out as a model?
Lynn Rose: Starting out I felt like I was on my own, when people asked me about modeling, they said, I was very beautiful but did I think I would find work being a plus size model. Within the past few years the market has really opened up, so it has fueled my fire to go hard to get picked up. I have a lot more friends and family support this time as well.
Jchell: Have you been published in any magazines?
Lynn Rose: No magazine features yet! *goals*.
Jchell: Besides modeling, have you done any acting?
Lynn Rose: Yes, I love acting. I've been in about 8 or 9 Productions for musical theatre. My favorite role would have to be, Eponine from Les Miserables. My next wish would to be featured on a sitcom or in a film.
Jchell: Let's talk about your beauty regimen. How do you keep your hair and skin looking healthy?
Lynn Rose: I soak in the bath with about a cap full, maybe a cap and a half of baby oil mixed in the water to keep my skin nourished. I keep my face clean with Biore combination skin balancing cleanser, I stick to mostly Avon lotion, moisture therapy line around this time of year. Shea Butter for elbows and heels, lol.
Jchell: What are your favorite fashion trends you love?
Lynn Rose: I really enjoy layering, I love wearing a tight pencil skirt or dress, and then tie a jean jacket around the waist. Or a bulky hoodie with a tight crop top on and some tights under ripped up jeans.
Jchell: Every girl has a special “can't live without this” in her closet, what's yours?
Lynn Rose: I definitely can't go without my tights of every print and color that's eye catching, lol.
Jchell: Who’s your favorite photographer(s)?
Lynn Rose: I love my local photographer s/o to LRP Photography @Lrptv. But I would LOVE to work with Osha Waiters. She's amazing and I look up to her business grind.
Jchell: Knowing what you know, what advice would you give to other models trying to establish themselves?
Lynn Rose: I know that for me, it helps to be as unique, and as different as possible, and do not hold back any talents or any of your gifts, because that's what sets you apart and makes people inspired by the way you love yourself.
Jchell: Is there anything else you would like to add?
Lynn Rose: I've been kind of saying over and over the past few days, I guess you could say my mantra is, "The elevator to success is broken, so you need to take the stairs." And the other is, "Be the best, never give up and settle for nothing."
