I was able to interview Ingrid Gray Rose. Here is what the inspiring, fun and driven Ingrid Gray Rose had to share with Consciousness Magazine.

Aaron Robinson: What was your inspiration in wanting to model?
Ingrid Gray Rose: Basically, I always had that desire since I was like 13 years old. I got involved at a young age and I have some family members who are in the entertainment business. That’s what inspired me to have an attraction for it.

Aaron: What are some of the challenges that you endure as a plus size model?
Ingrid: Honestly, to be honest with you, I haven’t found any challenges yet. If I could say challenges - the different diversity of being accepted in the industry and aspects of its divisions.

Aaron: You are also an actor, would you like to tell us a little about that. 
Ingrid: I have been seen on different television commercials such as MTC Realty commercial. I have been an extra in Law In Order and a lead actress in Philly Self Storage. I’m also featured in the upcoming Jamaican Reggae Artist "Monique" music video which will be released very soon. I do voice overs for people, businesses, establishments and hopefully one day Disney.

Aaron: What are some of the most rewarding things to you?
Ingrid: Being able to serve, being able to give my service to people as a talent. People being satisfied with interacting with me and networking with me in the industry. Also, people appreciating my gift, my talent, personality and people appreciating me for who I am and accepting me for being the real me that I am.

Aaron: What are some endeavors that you would like to partake in the future?
Ingrid: Hopefully working on my acting more and getting into music.  I’m looking to work harder in the commercial model industry and really looking to be successful in commercial modeling.

Aaron: What advice would you share with young women looking to be a model or entrepreneur?
Ingrid: If your heart is pulling you to direct, don’t allow anyone or anything to discourage that. [I would say] not to be timid or intimidated by negative comments. Follow your heart and just work hard toward it diligently.

Aaron: Would you like to add anything in closing?
Ingrid: Yes, I’m looking forward to getting with an agency and hopefully looking to land that big contract. I’m looking to getting in with some designers, being a successful model, getting out there and using all my gifts as an actress talent and my musical skills as well. I love music; I want to work on that later down the road. I really need more support from people who can help me achieve my dream. I like to work with people that are like-minded individuals.

Aaron: I really appreciate you pursing the interview.
Ingrid: You are very welcome.
