Next up from Models By Malique is the mesmirizing model named Amber. A native of Los Angeles living in Texas, Amber is in a league of her own. What I like about Amber is that she has an intellect that matches with her beauty. Amber epitomizes multi-ethnic beauty, and her hope is that the world of modeling will recognize multi-ethnic models who are beautiful but do not have a distinct "ethnic" look. Her ambition and intelligence will make her a champion in the modeling industry that people will have to recognize. Check out my interview with the classy and refined Amber!

First of all, where are you from and what city, state or town are you representing? I am originally from Los Angeles, California. Though I reside in Houston, Texas

What are your measurements? My measurements are 36’ , 24’ , 36’ I work hard to keep it that way!

Why did you want to become a model? I have always loved fashion even as a little girl. I always wanted to represent women as fierce, intelligent, and beautiful. I think by becoming a model would fit my dream in perfection.

Who is your greatest influence and what help you to decide that you would love to be a model??? Tyra Banks, she made me feel as if I wasn’t the only one. Similar to Tyra’s story, I to was always the tall skinny girl that couldn’t fit in at school. The fact that she made it even though no one thought she had what it takes, encourages me to continue pushing towards my goal.

What do you bring to the modeling field or game? An entirely different look. Through my observations of the models who have become household names, I have noticed that their ethnicity is very distinct. Though that does not take away the fact that they are gorgeous but I would love to see models whose ethnic background can not be labeled.

It would be a new movement for people to see models solely for their beauty and other attributes rather than a beautiful distinct ethnic look. I would broaden the whole look of what the new America looks like. The look of today is mixture. Pure races are becoming more and more extinct. So If given the opportunity I would have the chance to open the door for a whole new breed of models.

What do you like to do in your free time? I am a movie watcher. Because I work so much I don’t get a lot of free time to relax so I like to go early or late a night and watch a new released movie. Since that is my time to relax and enjoy life, I go often in my pj’s and unwind. The movie is my place where I can be in another world, where all the problems of this world is briefly forgotten.

Where is your favorite vacation spot? I have been to a lot of places most of them only once. The only place that I have been to frequently is Hawaii. I love beautiful scenery and exclusion. Anywhere that I can enjoy life is always a favorite.

I’m sure the fellas will want to know-are you single? or taken? I am married to working and trying to build a better relationship with God.

What kind of man do you prefer; Wall Street executive or hat to the back thug? I have always been attracted to intelligence. I have learned you can not judge a person by only his looks, just give him a chance and listen to his conversation.

What was your first kiss like? I have been so focused on becoming more than just a pretty face, I may have purposely forgotten. lol

What are you most likely to wear to the beach? To bed? To the club, if you go to clubs? It all depends on my mood.

What is your most defining feature? My mind, people tend to judge by appearance I sometimes shock them when I open my mouth.

Being as beautiful as you are, you must get alot of attention day to day. How do you deal with all that attention? I try to be nice to every one, you will never know when you may meet them again. The tables might be turned.

What's the worst opening line you have heard? You are so beautiful. lol

When you model, what settings do you like to do the most? Exotic backgrounds scenes. I love scenes like and ocean, a jungle back drop, anything with nature backgrounds.

In taking photos, what are you most comfortable in? Which ever the photographer says would be best. As long as it’s tasteful.

If you had a choice, what magazine would you be on the cover of? Teen, Elle, Fashion Fair, Vogue (of course)

If you had a choice of videos, which one would you be in? A dirty south crunk video or would you go R&B? I am not particular on music as long as it’s classy.

What is your favorite part about being a model? The opportunity that I get to represent a better look for younger women in today’s world.

What’s the best advice ever given to you? My Dad told me this “U have to know when to hold and when to fold.” lol

What are your goals in terms of being a model?
To set a new standard of today’s model.
