An interview with Julyah Rose

Tell us about your journey so  far

My name is Julyah Rose; I am an international model, actress, and singer. I was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey, a suburb of Manhattan, New York City.  I grew up in a very large extended family in New Jersey, my mom was one of 5 children, and my father was one of 8 children.

I knew since I was a child that being a performing arts star was one of my major life’s goals.  I used to tell my parents as a kid that I wanted to go to Manhattan to be a child actor; I used to walk around Manhattan, admiring the fashion and glamour of it all. No one really took me seriously as a child saying I was going to be a big star one day because a lot of kids say that and the chance of actually making it as a model or actress or singer I think is like 1 in 1 million.

Despite having an unusual and difficult childhood I always preserved and worked towards accomplishing my goal. I told myself that whatever happened in my life I wouldn’t let any obstacles deter me from achieving my dream.

When I was 14 my family moved to a remote rural cattle farm in Arizona on the border of Mexico, there weren’t really any resources there for me to work on my career, so all I wanted was to get out of that small town to bigger opportunities. We lived on a dirt road and dug a 400ft well to access water; I woke up at 5 am and rode my bike a mile down the road to catch the school bus which was then an hour ride to school. I always kept my dreams in mind and never gave up, I worked hard in school and graduated at the top 5% of my class with a 4.2 GPA and won several scholarships to Arizona State University in Phoenix, Arizona, that was my ticket to bigger opportunities.  While in college I was accepted to a prestigious program to study abroad in Florence Italy, while studying abroad, earning my International Business Certificate, I began working with Italian fashion photographers to develop my portfolio, including Fabrizio Romagnoli, a famous Italian fashion photographer who published my photos on the Vogue Italia website.

Upon returning to Arizona, I signed with Courtier Model Management in Phoenix Arizona. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Communications in May 2014.

The day after graduation I moved to New York City to pursue my modeling, acting, and singing career full time. The first year living in New York was rough but as I began to become more recognized in the New York City fashion scene things got a bit easier. In the fall of 2015 I signed with one of New York’s most reputable fashion agencies Fenton Model Management. I have walked in New York Fashion Week for the past three years. Even though I’ve come all this way I am still just at the beginning of my modeling career and now I’m looking to expand full scale into singing and acting as well.

Book Review: These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly

Layered Pages

these-shallow-gravesJo Montfort is beautiful and rich, and soon—like all the girls in her class—she’ll graduate from finishing school and be married off to a wealthy bachelor. Which is the last thing she wants. Jo secretly dreams of becoming a writer—a newspaper reporter like the trailblazing Nellie Bly.

Wild aspirations aside, Jo’s life seems perfect until tragedy strikes: her father is found dead. Charles Montfort accidentally shot himself while cleaning his revolver. One of New York City’s wealthiest men, he owned a newspaper and was partner in a massive shipping firm, and Jo knows he was far too smart to clean a loaded gun.

The more Jo uncovers about her father’s death, the more her suspicions grow. There are too many secrets. And they all seem to be buried in plain sight. Then she meets Eddie—a young, brash, infuriatingly handsome reporter at her father’s newspaper—and it becomes all too clear how…

10 years of Titan

Master Luke Robinson

Taekwondomaster-luke-robinson-high-kick-sunshine

The word ‘Titan’ actually means so much to me – it’s a word that has meaning, it represents everything that i consider important.

Basically what Titan represents is approaching life with martial values: Working and Improving.

“Anybody who is Working and Improving is a Titan!”

*There is more; family values, positivity, aiming high, always grinding, proactivity, creativity, and more – but this all falls into “Working and improving”*

Titan (as an idea) first came into existence 10 years ago when Titan Taekwondo (a small, family run taekwondo club) was created.

Since that time Titan has grown and developed while staying true to what it means.

Titan Academy, Titan Writin’, TITANWEAR,  as well as many more projects and ventures.

Titan has always worked with, helped develop, created, and nutured strong, successful and individual characters and will continue to do so!

This year marks the 10th year of ‘Titan’ being in…

Weighing The Now

Nice short story

Ana Linden

6No, she didn’t want any desert. Yes, she was saying no to the best tiramisu in town. Her daughter raised her eyebrows in disbelief – she had never heard her say no to tiramisu. Occasionally binging on sweets was their thing. Was anything wrong? No, everything was fine, she was just trying to cut back on sweets and eat healthily. After all, her daughter was doing the same for several years, she should understand. After all, the fact that she had just made that decision wasn’t relevant to the matter. More for me, and the daughter winked at her mother as the waitress placed the desert accompanied by two spoons between the two of women.

She watched her daughter obliviously savour her tiramisu. She used to be able to indulge in such calorie bombs, but she learnt not that long ago that such luxuries don’t last for a lifetime. Halfway…

As people remember I interviewed Derek Allen in 2014 when he was in the band Counterfeit I. This interview can be viewed on MARSocial. In this interview we get an insight into Derek’s new band Lower Automation.

Tell us about your new band Lower Automation?

In the spring of 2015, I started writing the songs that found their way into ‘Maps.’ We recorded the EP with Sanford Parker in Chicago last summer. Matt and Brain joined shortly thereafter. In the next few months we started playing and touring, and we put out ‘Maps’ back in April.
