I just received some really exciting news about Dublin’s hottest new fashion model, Amber Jean Rowan. The star of RTÉ’s The Model Agent is off to London this week having been signed by the prestigious model agency that helped create the show.
Amber told me, “The MD from the Independent model agency called me the week after the show finished and offered me a contract. All the directors sat down and watched the show tapes and decided to invite me on board”.
The gorgeous Dubliner was a stand-out competitor on the RTÉ show. So much so that during one episode Ellis said of her, that she, “had shown courage, determination and strength of character”… These are admirable qualities in a young woman of any age, but Amber is amazingly, still only 16!
Amber assured me she was keeping up with her studies, saying, “I will only stay for the summer as I have to go back to school in September ( at 16 I have to finish school) But I can take off all the time I need, to work”.
This girl is a true role model for any young, aspiring Irish women; proving that even though she was runner up on the TV show, her courage, determination and oodles of talent have really paid off. Amber proved to be an absolute natural in-front of the Lens, creating professional and inspiring images in every task in the show. She has also had to battle through more than many other girls of her age could imagine and I couldn’t be happier for her as she embarks on a Summer in one of Europe’s most exciting cities. She told me “Since the show I have been working flat out which is great”, but of the trip to London, she’s “not sure what to expect”. If the show is anything to go by, Amber will be a huge success and I can’t wait to hear all about her time there!
Good Luck Amber, and keep us posted! x
