WE HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING THIS FILIPINO x SPANISH BEAUTY AT OUR MANCHESTER SHOOT THE OTHER WEEK
LETS CHECK OUT HER 411…
Name: Melissa Rosal-Albarico
Model name: Raven (a nick name)
Age: 34 🙈
Hometown: Dereham Norfolk
Describe yourself in 3 words? Passionate/ Silly/ fashionista
Best feature? Eyes
Agreed. Fave night in? Cuddled up on sofa with my duvet, Indian, horror films
Ideal night out? Cocktail bar with my fave girlies. Singing cheesy songs and having a good boogie
Guy crush? Jason statham/ Anthony Joshua
Girl crush? There’s a few 🙈 Rihanna/ Megan Fox
Fave movies? What dreams may come, American Sniper, Tears of the Sun….
Fave album/music? RnB/Hiphop mostly but I love anything with a good beat. My playlist is a tad bit of a rollercoaster haha. It can go from Dire straights to Dr Dre in a shuffle. Loving Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton right now
What’s your poison of choice? Gin and lemonade
You got any any annoying habits? I tend to waffle on a lot instead of getting to the point.
What else do you do aside from modelling. Any hobbies or interests?? I love walking. I’m a frequent at moel famau. I Climbed a volcano once! Watching box sets and getting completely obsessed with the characters….and tattoos! I’m quite the collector
Go on… more about your tattoos? My tattoo collection started 2008. It was my ex’s name (cringe) massive mistake but at the time I felt I needed to prove something.
Anyways fast forward to present day. My tattoos symbolise something of coming from something dark and negative to growing from it. Its my therapy of choice. The pain I feel from getting tattoos done help relive pain I feel internally. When I look back at the tattoo I’ve chosen for that particular pain/moment, I don’t think of what put me through it; I just see the strength that got me through it.
Tell us your party trick… I can pick things up with my toes. That’s pretty much it
Your in a zombie apocalypse; what do you do to survive? I’d try to kill a few but more than likely be the first one to die. I’m quite spontaneous, which will probably get me killed!
If you could be anywhere in the world right now where would it be and why?There’s no where I’d rather be than be with my babies. They’ve been away for six weeks over the summer with their dad. I’m exactly where I want/need to be. At home with them.
Finally, what’s your ultimate goal/dream? Have a family run business. I’m thinking a Filipino/Spanish restaurant. Have my aunts and uncles cook traditional food. I guess a bit like Nando’s but Filipino food instead.
