DESERAE ROSE

I have been through a lot which has made me view the world differently. The honest truth is I am just fearless. Growing up, my parents constantly had a camera or camcorder on me at all times. I was a very creatively expressive kid. From childhood, I was acting, singing and dancing so as an adult it comes naturally. People always gravitate towards my eyes, so I make sure that I'm able to tell a story in a photo and exude a lot of emotion as well.

The photo shoot with Johnny Cinematic was one of my favourites thus far. I love when there is a passionate creative team to collab with; it always comes out incredible. Johnny came to me with the idea and I added my twist to it. I love dress up and come on, my IG handle and clothing line is called Black Rabbit. I'm hardly ever uncomfortable but the most is when I'm naked. (laughing)

I am a victim of being a prisoner of my mind and it took a tragedy to open up my eyes and mind to what is really important in life. I would say reading a lot of self-improvement books, books about being mindful and I really liked the Robert Greene books a well. Remember, if your dreams or goals are humanly possible then you are capable of making them a reality.

It was definitely obvious that I would be doing something artistic, but it took me longer to get started than everyone expected. I tried to live a normal life with a 9-5 in a relationship for nine years... That's what's shocking.

One of the most challenging aspects of my work, but one that I'm grateful for is: Seeing your creative visions come to life and sharing them with the world. To create art for a living is a dream job but you are also putting yourself out there to be judged and sometimes people don't see the vision you do.

You must be [optimistic], or you manifest negativity in the world that is unnecessary. As long as my life is full of creating, inspiring, and educating people, I will had lived a happy and fulfilled life.
