Who is Rosa Acosta?
For those who are into fitness and modeling, Rosa Acosta needs no introduction. The bold and beautiful Dominican wears many hats; she is a dancer, fitness guide, model, reality show star, and actress, all squeezed into one. She describes herself as “Ballet Dancer, Massage Therapist, Elbow Lover, Nippologist, Scar kisser, Shower Opera Singer, Midget hunter and future chef” on her Twitter handle. From being on the cover of some of the most esteemed fashion magazines to starring in the videos of popular songs and creating buzz on reality TV, she has done it all. Her primary focus, however, is on fitness and she has been devoting most of her time to that lately. Despite being one of the most sought after faces in many international magazines, Rosa is extremely humble and down to earth. This trait makes her all the more charming to her millions of fans around the world.
Stardom did not come to Rosa overnight. Hers is the story of hard work and dedication from a very young age. After being trained at the ICA and Ballet School of Norma Garcia, she became the youngest soloist in the Dominican National Ballet in 2002. This was considered an outstanding feat in itself. A couple of years later, Rosa started her modeling career. Her first assignments were for the famous ‘DR businesses’.
Determined to make a name, Rosa set sail to the United States in 2006. Her work back at home had garnered some interest in the international fashion circuit. Her career took a sharp upward spike after setting foot in the United States. She was immediately offered assignments in leading fashion magazines including XXL, King, Blackmen and Smooth. To make matters even better, she was voted XXL magazine’s ‘Eye Candy of the Year’ in 2009. She has also been adorned with other titles such as the Model of the Year by the Urban Model Awards in 2010. She was arguably the most sought after model during 2009-2012.
With so much attention on her, it was only natural that she would be spotted by the music and television industry. She starred in the music videos of songs like Juelz Santana's "Back to the Crib", Mike Posner's "Drug Dealer Girl", Drake's "Best I Ever Had", The DEY's "I Need You", Chris Brown's "I Can Transform Ya", Mario's "Break Up", and Booba's "Caesar Palace" and Harvey Stripes's - "Must Be Money" and spiced up the hotness quotient of the songs quite a few notches.
She is a fitness freak and has started a YouTube channel where she uploads training and exercise videos. She has also started her own fitness and clothing line called CossaMia in 2012.
