Her ability to keep going no matter what and following her passion makes her different from all.
Let us get an insight into Amber’s life and career!
Congratulations on getting to the Cover of World Model Hunt Magazine. From being a featured model in our magazine to being the cover for the month, how does it feel?
Amber – I’m honored to finally be on the cover of World Model Hunt Magazine! In 2019 I was so excited to have my first feature with WMH and being on the cover for 2021 just motivates me to keep on pushing and creating.
How did you pave your way into modeling? Also, was modeling always a plan of your career?
Amber – I started dance when I was 3 years old, which came with doing photoshoots in costumes. My love of dance and being behind the camera just kept on growing, so I started to get into some modeling in High School. I did my first ad with Kevin Unger (Photographer) in High School, which really piqued my interest. I loved the glam, the makeup, and the environment. Now fast forward many years later 2021, I’m learning to work behind the camera as well as continuing to model and promote brands. Modeling something that helps me express myself, keeps me grounded, makes me feel beautiful, and is something that I love to do and would continue to dabble in.
Amber, you are an incredible dancer! And we love the dance videos you put up on social media! Give us an insight into your dancing career and the dance academy you have built.
Amber – In 2019 I started up my own dance company. At the time I was also the Choreographer and Director for the CEBL Niagara River Lions Dance Pak, as well as danced on that team for many years before that. My love of dance continued to grow. I noticed that there wasn’t a space in Niagara that let dancers ages 18+ express themselves in an empowering environment, as well as grow their skills. Your Highness Inc teaches dance classes including Hip Hop, Heels & Twerk. We also feature in music videos, create dance visuals, perform at events. It is such a crazy and exciting environment, there is so much love and support with all of the dancers. I can’t wait to see what happens with Your Highness Inc in the next few years.
With rising covid cases, the world is slowly resuming back to lockdowns. With that said, how are you planning to spend your birthday which is on May 17, this lockdown?
Amber – With my Birthday coming up on May 17th, it is really difficult with Covid-19. I would love to have dinner with my friends and family but that is not in the cards this year for everyone’s safety. I will be happily ordering sushi, watching scary movies, and drinking lots of red wine
You are fun, full of energy, and amazingly stunning! What’s your secret to all that source of energy and positivity in life?
Amber – My secret to having a good source of energy and positivity in life is surrounding yourself with people who support you and having people around you who are always wanting to succeed and do better for themselves. I don’t put my energy into those who don’t send me positive energy because that drains me. I am also a very spiritual individual. Also, I meditate and smudge almost daily to keep myself grounded and start/end my day with positive energy.
From quite a young age you have accomplished a successful career so far! What new ideas or plans do you have for the future?
Amber – I have many plans for the future! For my dance company Your Highness Inc, I plan to start traveling and teaching classes around the world. As well as big hopes to perform for some big artists on tour once covid has passed. As for modeling, I plan to keep on creating and pushing myself out of my comfort zone. Like I always say, “Success lies outside of your comfort zone”.
Looking back in time, what would you describe as the most embarrassing yet funny moment in your life?
Amber – My most embarrassing moment in life was when I was in grade 6 and my friend pulled my shorts down in front of my crush. So embarrassed!
Fashion and style are the deadliest amalgamations one can pursue! What is the fashion mantra that you follow? Also, who according to has the greatest sense of fashion that inspires you?
Amber – My fashion mantra is to ALWAYS accessorize! It plays a crucial part in completing your look and adding a little bit of spice! Rihanna is the fashion QUEEN! She is a huge inspiration in my closet.
After a tiring and hectic workday, how do you unwind yourself?
Amber – After a tiring day at work, I always love to cook, have a nice glass of wine and watch a movie to unwind! I also do some painting on the side, I am not crazy good or something but it really helps to calm me down!
Lastly, what is it that keeps you going and how do you overcome the hardships that you face in the course?
Amber – What keeps me going is always remembering to celebrate small successes. I really like to follow various artists, photographers, their journey inspires me a lot! Work can be pretty stressful at times. I mean, you have your good days, you have your bad days but I think that’s something I am super passionate about, be it behind the camera or in front of the camera, I love being a part of it! So, overall it’s a fun positive environment and you just get to grow in so many different ways!
Thank you so much for your time and we wish you all the very best for your upcoming journey! We appreciate your answers to help our audience know more about you!
