Interviews -Independent Massachusetts model Rosaliea Sebastino just gave me a lot to remember in our very first interview together for the website and I am happy to share it. We have been connected through Facebook for a long time and I thought the timing for an interview couldn’t of been even more perfect and sent the invitation to do it. When she agreed I wrote up some questions for her to answer and sent them right over. I hope you enjoy reading it.
~*~*Interview /w Rosaliea Sebastino*~*~
Internet Hollywood: What’s up Rosaliea?! For the first time EVER I finally have you here to do a special interview with us over here at Internet Hollywood. You’ve been on my list for years and its surprising that I never featured you on the website before. I appreciate you accepting this invitation to do this short interview. This is definitely a big deal to me because your work is pretty freaking awesome. But since we’re first starting, we have to begin with the most basic common questions we normally ask for people we feature for the first time. So if you don’t mind me asking, could you fill our readers in on who you are, where you from, and what you do?
Rosaliea: I am a woman with a determined mind. I am very headstrong in school, always have been. I am a bit of a nerd. I am a very large 90’s lover (my favorite shows, kid’s toys, and memories are from this era) I love video games, I adore older games, like Zombies Ate my Neighbor, Crazy Taxi, Frogger, PacMan, and many more. To explain my character, I am in love with Star Wars and I can’t get enough of Doctor Who, Black Mirror, and I am currently in the process of watching Game of Thrones. My favorite movie types are older as well: Basket Case, Hobo with a Shotgun, Friday the 13th (any horror movies really), and Ace Ventura, along with many comedies. My favorite animal is a Sea Otter and I am OBSESSED with pineapples. I am also an odd person, as my best friend Chris Addams would tell me. But, I must agree 100%. I love making dad-jokes, and I am extremely good at making them. I must say, my puns are legendary. I am from the Berkshires. Lots of bi-polar weather with harsh winters and hot summers. I’ve lived in 2 cities and 1 town here. However, all of the areas I’ve lived in have been pretty quiet. Nothing too special.
I am currently a Quality Assurance Engineer. I work at a plastics facility that specializes in medical molding. I do lots of reports and quality assurance, it’s a bit of a process. But, at this time, I currently have 8 parts that are going through a validation process under my name. Very exciting for me. However, most of my projects have had quite a few obstacles. I am also juggling a Document Control position while doing my job title, as I am in the process of training a new Doc Control hire. So, busy busy in the work life. I do miss modeling though. I haven’t done anything in a while. Hoping to jump back into it soon. One of my favorite parts of what I did/do though, was assist Chris Addams with his photographing of models. I loved posing them and seeing their face light up when they saw the results. I am also starting my journey into YouTube. Trying to start my own channel(s). One will definitely be ChickyMcSebs. The other will probably be Rosaliea Sebastino. I will be doing lots of unboxing, reviews, gaming, but, we’ll see. I guess I’d rather call myself a lady. Lol. Not a woman.
Internet Hollywood: Modeling has always been a route where many people feel they could express themselves in a way that could be admired in a more professional sense. Many people have manage to create a business out of all of the hard work their doing. What inspired you to want to become a model and what are some of the goals you put in place to build your foundation as one?
Rosaliea: I originally wanted to model because of a photographer by the name of Chuck Underhill. I had attended a shoot with my friend, and, he had asked me to get behind the camera. I fell in love with the ability to create such beautiful art. However, I was never able to successfully create a business out of my modeling. I wanted to. It was an activity that made me feel empowered, sexy, strong, beautiful, and confident. I looked into quite a few modeling agencies, but, all of them wanted me to quit school and only focus on modeling. Which was understandable, however, is too much of a risk for me. I was raised that I must attend college. I should finish college, and do what I’d like only after I have finished. I hope to begin modeling again. But, in my mind, I believe I must put my schooling and stable career ahead of what is currently a hobby for me.
Internet Hollywood: What fits your comfort zone as a model when it comes to photo shoots and are you also into doing things like calendars, magazines, fashion shows, and stuff that’s common in the modeling field?
Rosaliea: My comfort zone ends at showing any of my lady bits. I don’t mind not wearing a top or a bra, but, everything must be covered by something. I would love to do calendars, magazines, fashion shows, and other in depth modeling items. I have only done a fashion show once, a bridal show once, and, I had been entered into a magazine, but, no luck.
Internet Hollywood: You also stated you were attending college right now. What are you taking up as a student in school and what inspired you to take on that course of your choosing?
Rosaliea: As a student, I am currently taking up Mechanical Engineering. G Throughout school, I actually wanted to be a teacher. I love teaching people new things and watching them learn. However, once I hit high school, I fell in love with physics. I was good at it, and I felt like I was a natural with the math that was involved with the courses. I looked further into the field and learned how successful people are in this field and decided this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
Internet Hollywood: Where did you get the name Rosaliea from and what made you choose that as a first name to represent your brand and what kind of vision do you have behind all of the work you do as a model when you think in terms of what the future holds?
Rosaliea: Rosaliea is actually a version of my middle name. I thought it was a beautiful name to hold my brand under. As a model, I hope to grow more, and become more successful in the business side of everything. I hope that with the YouTube career, I may grow back into modeling more. And pursue some of my dreams to appear in a magazine and a calendar. For the future, modeling will definitely be my second job if it regrows. I am in love with my job and have never been happier.
Internet Hollywood: Is there anything you are currently working on now that you would like everyone to know about?
Rosaliea: I am currently working on a YouTube channel as I had mentioned prior! I am extremely excited to see where this brings me. I want to be able to reach out to more people. I love knowing I make people smile. It makes me feel complete. And, with my personality, I am hoping that I can reach many people. I can’t wait. I am currently in the process of building a bit of a video bunch. To release all at once. I am aiming for 3-5 videos. My first channel will be ChickyMcSebs. I honestly can’t wait!
Internet Hollywood: Thank you for the interview, Rosaliea!
