TWS: Hi Amy! Tell us a little about yourself, ethnicity, all that jazz..
A: I’m Vietnamese mixed w/a little Chinese and French from my grandfather. I grew up in Monterrey Park, then moved to the LA/OC area…I’m only 5’2 without my heels, and I love to eat! I’m also rude-funny in a loveable smart-ass way lol.
TWS: So what exactly got you into modeling? Any inspirations, or did you just wake up one day and say “Damn, I’m gorgeous… I should model!”?
A: Right after I got my boobs, my doctor asked what I was going to do..I just blurted out “I wanna be in magazines” I’m glad I just said what was on my mind because he introduced me to a photographer friend of his who did my first photo shoot for me. From there on, other photographers started asking me to shoot and that’s how I became the accidental import model.
TWS: Kind of worked out perfectly then haha. Were you a nerdy kid growing up, or one of the popular ones?
A: Oh hell no, I WISHED I was one of the popular ones!! No, I wasn’t really a nerd OR cool, I guess I was the wannabe lol. I wanted to be cool and pretty like the popular girls in high school but I wasn’t. To guys, I was the “little sister” role, and I was the girl they’d go and ask for advice. About other girls. -_-
TWS: I bet those guys would act differently now. What do you like to do on your days off, anything crazy or adventurous?
A: Nope, I’m boring. On my days off, I love to sleep in, make a yummy coffee w/my new Keurig machine, watch Kardashians, E!, or the Real Housewives of something or other, and maybe lay out by the pool. I loveeee to be lazy when I’m not working!
TWS: What is the most embarrassing moment you have ever had during a photo shoot?
A: When I was shooting and thought I was hot stuff, and my photographer friend told me I had camel toe the whole time because of the stupid tight shorts I was wearing.
TWS: The camel strikes again! Do you have any hidden talents that you find interesting or weird?
A: Is it weird that I can pick things up with my toes??
TWS: Is it weird that I can’t? Where is you favorite place to travel and describe your perfect vacation?
A: Favorite place to travel is Hawaii (yay I get to go soon!!!)…My perfect vacation involves a beautiful 5-star hotel, a bathroom w/a soaking tub, an infiniti pool, and 24 hour room service!!!
TWS: Take me with you!!!!! So what is you favorite kind of music to listen to?
A: I’m pretty strange. I listen to a little bit of everything. My Pandora looks like someone with bipolar disorder selected the stations. I like everything from Edward Maya vocally trance, Linkin Park, The Cure, Spanish guitar…and when I’m feeling emo, I like sad depressing stuff.
TWS: Well rounded, I like that. If you could choose one car to drive for the rest of your life, what would it be?
A: a sexy Audi
TWS: How many tattoos / piercings do you have and where?
A: Just pierced ears . No tats.
TWS: Are you the type of girl that likes to sit quietly and read a book, or go watch the movie?
A: Im the one that likes to sit quietly and read a book, orrrr a celebrity gossip magazine. I don’t like going to the movies. I get into fights w/stupid annoying ppl who like to talk during movies. GRRR! My pet peeve!
TWS: What’s your favorite movie of all time?
A: Haha, definitely Mean Girls! It’s so true!!! “Halloween is the only time a girl can dress like a complete slut and get away with it.” LOL!
TWS: Oh man haha. What’s your favorite type of food to eat?
A: What’s NOT should be the question lol. I love, love, love French fries, or chips. Or spicy kimchi shabu/hot pot.
TWS: What’s the best / worst pick up line you have heard so far?
A: “Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?” Dude, did it hurt when I punched you in the face for such a lame line?!
TWS: Describe yourself in three words, and don’t hold back.
A: Feisty, caring, brat
