Venessa DeLaRosa, was born in Ft.Lewis, Washington and now resides in Atlanta, Ga. Having a father in the military afforded her the opportunity to travel all over the US and abroad. As a teen she grew up watching her father perform and it wasn’t long before she caught the performing bug. She began acting and modeling in high school, It was then when Venessa participated in the Miss Teen San Antonio pageant that her dream of becoming a successful model grew into a passion. Her unique on stage presence led to an invitation to be a presenter at the Texas Tejano Music awards where she shared the same stage with the late singer Selena. After graduating high school, Venessa decided to follow her father’s footsteps and entered into the US Army where she served four years. After serving her term, she entered into corporate America working for OfficeMax, and then relocating to Atlanta to work for Home Depot Corporate. In 2007 she decided to return to the modeling industry after being inspired by the ANTM season that featured Toccara Jones. Tocarra’s resilience and positive affirmation of plus size woman inspired Venessa to continue to pursue her modeling career. She has been in numerous fashion shows all over the US and has been seen on TV modeling for Bella Renee in House of Curves that aired on WE TV. She also modeled for Nicci Gilbert Curvato line on R&B Divas. In 2012, she competed and won over hundreds of other beautiful woman becoming the Face of Full Figured Fashion Week.
Venessa is also a full-time mother to three beautiful girls, one which is a college student. She is a woman who strives to uplift and empower other women because she knows that even in the midst of our strength we need someone to love on. I am honored to know and work with Venessa because she is such an amazing woman with a testimony that you wouldn’t believe. She is a woman who’s outer beauty is only matched by that which lies within and she is definitely, P.H.A.T GIRL FRESH.
