TFP: Where are you from? Family background? City? Borough?
Aimee: My earlier years as a child I lived in Israel. Which makes me a dual citizen: Israeli and American. My parents are from the Dominican Republic hence my Spanish features. We’ve lived in the Bronx, New York for a majority of time. Other times in Harlem. We moved a lot.
TFP: How long have you been in the game? What are some of the challenges you’ve faced?
Aimee: I’d say about 2 years now. It was shortly after moving back to the US from Poland. I didn’t like my options work wise when I got my degree and a 9-5 as a legal aid was not my dream. Acting is. I started taking classes during the day and auditioning. I needed to handle my finances so bartending at night kept my head above water. Then I started meeting people who came after me for shoots. It’s been a ride ever since. Challenges…at first my challenges were auditioning and getting the parts but the projects have not taken off due to finances or others being phonies. I then dedicated myself to be able to book editorials and ad campaigns so I recently dropped 30 pounds and worked my body into its best healthy and physical manner and now the actual challenge begins. Getting the work from these big brands. I’m aiming for fitness ads.
TFP: What are some of your more notable gigs? Any projects your working on now?
Aimee: My interviews with celebrities on the red carpet for the premiere of Glam Fairy on the style network. They’re available on YouTube. Other gigs are walking several fashion shows for designers for fashion week. A music video. My present work is coming soon so I’d rather show you then tell you. My present work…..I’m currently teaching belly dancing classes.
TFP: What are your ultimate goals? What’s on the horizon?
Aimee: I’ve got plenty. One being a well respected actress in Hollywood and Bollywood. I fit both looks well. Attending law school as well for corporate law. Let’s see which comes first.
