Hello Beautiful models and fans of Style & Curve. It’s Angelita Aronce Sorensen here with my first weekly blog of 2014. First I want to take a moment to apologize for not posting a blog the last 4 weeks. I was very ill and hospitalized for a week and I was on the road to recovery but now I’m much better and I’m back! Being the second day of 2014 I thought I would reflect on the wonderful opportunities and amazing things that have happened in 2013. I believe I’ve already mentioned in a previous blog that I started my modeling and acting career at age 41. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would be as successful as I’ve been and 2013 was definitely a wonderful year for me.
I’ve acted in several great films starting 2013 off with filming the feature film “Zombie Prombie” in the role of Nurse Abby and although it’s still in postproduction you can find some info on it here. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Zombie-Prombie The next feature film I worked on right after that was H.O.A. Havoc starring Daniel Baldwin and my character is Flatula. It was a fun and comedic role and this film is also in postproduction and I even performed a scary stunt but it was well worth it. A short film that I was part of and actually filmed in 2012, “The Symphony of Silence” in the role of Ana , a mother who goes after her son’s bully won the Platinum Remi Award at 2013 Worldfest-Houston International Film Festival.
I also starred in my first music video by Mallorie, the song is called “Imagine” and it is such a beautiful Military inspired Love Song. It was such an honor when I was contacted and asked to be part of this project. Mallorie wanted a real military couple so I my husband was my co-star in this music video. The link to this beautiful song and music video on YouTube is below.
I was also involved with NDG Productions and was part of four commercials for various free family events for The Thingamajigy Fayre, SciFest 2013, Monstercon 2013
, and Nerdtactular Holiday Bazaar 2013. I was also involved in other film projects ranging from commercial work to features and ranging from extra work to lead roles in 2013. You can find my IMDB page here: http://www.imdb.me/angelita.sorensen
Regarding modeling projects, I started off 2013 by gracing the cover of Latin Connection Magazine with a 3-page story inside. You can download a free digital copy or purchase a hard copy at this link. http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/550960 I was blessed to be part of a few print projects including the Timeless Beauty Book, featuring models over the age of 40 by the talented photographer Imiko. http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/invited/3474397/631f1c4f7ed92dffcbb85f099ba314b2d0766550 I was also Miss August in a calendar fundraiser project for Cancer Benefit , Empowering to Live and I’m finishing the year out with another calendar project called “Warmth for the Homeless” as Ms. May 2014. The proceeds will be used to purchase coats and blankets for the homeless in our community. The calendars are only $10 so feel free to contact me if you’re interested in supporting our cause and wish to purchase a calendar. Two of the most exciting things that happened with my modeling career in 2013 was being the July Profile Pic winner for CMR and I will be one of the 8 faces of Fashion A Go Go launching this plus size clothing line in Paris, April of 2014. I am in great company with some of the most beautiful international models! I am also one of the bloggers on Style & Curve fka Curvy Models Rocks. I have also modeled for quite a few photographers and ripped the runway in quite a few shows, many of them being charity fundraising fashion shows like the Fiesta Fierce Fashion Parade that benefited the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
In 2013, I also gave back to the community with organizations like NDG Heroes. I participated in several events with NDG Heroes to help raise money for children with devastating diseases. I also went to the children’s hospital to visit some of the children and knowing that they are suffering from horrible illnesses, seeing their faces light up when walking into their rooms was so rewarding. I was also involved with several other projects including “Women in Heels” an organization that is consistently giving back to the community and co-founded by one of my best friends, Valerie Anne Chavira-Luna. I also put together a fundraiser as Ms. Texas Plus Size Diva 2012/13 called TPSD Divas & Gents. It was a bachelor/bachelorette auction to raise funds for the TPSD organization and to benefit a family dealing with cancer. Daytime @ 9 in San Antonio even interviewed me on their show to promote the TPSD organization and to promote this fundraiser. I also mentor teenagers and women privately. Giving back is one of the most rewarding things that I have the privilege of doing.
2013 was an amazing year. I have a wonderful support systems, a family and husband who love and support me unconditionally and of course friends who also love and support me and mean the world to me. I’ve learned a lot, grown from all my experiences this past year whether they would good, bad or indifferent. For those of you who feel like your life is going nowhere, I can relate, I’ve been there and I can tell you that it’s up to YOU to change the direction of your life. YOU are the ONLY person who can make a difference in your life. Find your inner strength and understand that it is NOT too late to follow your dreams. Don’t let the “haters” bring you down. Smile and show them what you can do…that is the best “revenge” and Karma will take care of the rest. I guarantee that you will get many rejections but don’t allow that to stop you from chasing your dreams, whether it’s to be a model, an actress or anything else you choose to do in life. Don’t allow the negative people along the way bring you down and trust me; there will be negative people that will cross your path. Take control of your future, even if it means smashing through preconceived boundaries in this industry. Until next week, stay positive!
