We had the good fortune of connecting with Rachel Ramos and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Rachel, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Being an actor and model is very challenging at times because of the constant rejection and the constant hustle, but I think the reason I have come to be somewhat successful in this industry is the fact that I don’t give up, and I keep going. Because for every “no” that I hear, that means I’m one step closer to a “yes”. Success doesn’t happen overnight, it’s an uphill battle, and I’m still on my way to success every day.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I never thought I would be an actress and model. I actually wanted to be a TV news reporter and went to school for that. I even got my Master’s Degree in Broadcast Journalism from USC. But, it didn’t really work out. LA is my home and I couldn’t get myself to leave. I also started to realize that life is short and sometimes, you just have to do the things you’ve always wanted to do. That’s when I discovered that it’s actually possible to make modeling and acting a career. But, it wasn’t easy. I work so hard, and now, I do this full-time, but, I’m still far from where I want to be.
I give one hundred and ten percent of myself to my career and I work harder than most in this industry. I truly feel like I am meant to be doing this, I want to be a storyteller and inspire others. I also just love working with other creative and amazing people. I’ve met so many incredible human beings on set.
My dream job would be to work as a regular on a sitcom or comedy show. I love comedy and thinking quick on my feet.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I honestly am not a huge “LA” person. I’m more of a suburbs kinda gal. I like the more chill relaxed vibe. I enjoy being able to find parking without having to pay or circle the block 5 times. I actually am from Orange County, so I would recommend anyone check out OC, it’s got a way more relaxed vibe, and in my opinion is just a better place to visit. So many great beaches and restaurants. And OC has Disneyland! Which is my favorite place in the world!
