There are a lot of BLAZIN entertainers popping up all over the place. With the invention of sites like Instagram, facebook, Twitter and Youtube we are are getting introduced to talented individuals we may have never even known existed. From city to city, coast to coast I want to shine the spotlight on those who impress me most. I will be bringing you interviews with some of the hottest established and up and coming entertainers and internet personalities that I run across as I blaze my own path of fame across the net. Let’s get it on!! Time to meet one of them now………
Hello. My name is paradise Rodriguez. I am 23 years old and based in Miami Florida and Atlanta Georgia. I am nationally and internationally published and a working professional actress, brand ambassador , dancer and model….. I am 5’6″ and 105 lbs
1.) You’re so multi talented I don’t want to mislabel you. I know you’re a model, dancer and actress. Are there any other talents I’m forgetting?
I am also a brand ambassador . I have the honor of representing several companies , like triple rock vodka in New Zealand….besides ,my professional side, I am a fire spitter and QB for a ladies football team we are organizing.
2.) To be skilled in so many arts you must have gotten started early. At what age did you know you were meant to be a star? What talent did you start to develop first?
I knew very early on I was going to be a business woman. There were so many things I wanted to do but not having parents and a stable home with several siblings, presented my goals rather difficult. It took me a few years, but I never gave up. I began my acting career when I was 13 gaining the leading role in our community theater, after which I took a break and dove straight into my modeling at 16.
3.) You’ve competed in beauty pageants I see. Can you tell Me what pageants you have participated in and what, if any, titles you have won?
I’ve competed a bit. Pageants are VERY different than your normal bikini competitions. I’m currently Miss Florida for the International Miss Regency pageant. I have won best smile for viva la glam as well as the whole title for the 97x competition down in Panama City Beach.
4.) I notice that you travel a lot, so far what has been the most exotic place you’ve traveled? What has been your favorite locale thus far?
So far the furthest I’ve traveled has been Cancun Mexico, however I am currently nailing details in stone for my European adventure. I love everywhere I go but my heart lives in Miami beach.
5.) I noticed you talking on your facebook fan page about having a serious illness and how your sharing of it has helped inspire your fans? How long have you been sick and how do you battle being sick with your active work schedule?
Being since has certainly placed quite a few obstacles in my path, but I refuse to allow that to stop me. I am an ovarian cancer patient with a heart condition. It makes life harder especially when I am a workaholic. I was born at 22 week and that came with its own complications, so I’ve pretty much been sick my whole life. There are days where I can’t move let alone get out of bed, so I’ve learned to simply rest on those days and when the good days come…work as much as I can. Everything in my life has a balance and as long as I do my best to maintain that balance I’m okay.
6.) What is your dream gig?
My dream gig would be to walk in the Victorias Secret Fashion Show.
7.) What is it you love about modeling? Do you prefer photo shoots or walking the run way in fashion shows?
I love EVERYTHING about modeling. I prefer both my shoots and runway work.
8.) What do you turn to for peace away from work?
When I’m not working….which is rare…I love being active or reading a good novel. I absolutely love hanging out with friends at the beach.
9.) You’ve done so much what’s left? Where do you see your career in 5 years?
Well…I’m going to launch two of my companies in a year and get myself into maxim and sports illustrated
10.) Where can people find more of you?
Finding me is pretty easy. If people Google my name or use my hashtag #paradiserodriguez on any social media, they will be linked to me, but people can also just find me on anything under paradise Rodriguez
