Queenâ€™s Gorgeous Amber Tennyson
Amber: â€œI would work towards eradicating poverty and drugs in the U.S., implement a new trade law to give back more income to impoverished nations that the U.S. imports raw materials from, and reinstitute intense courses on anthropology, genealogy, and extensive world history in the school systems from Kindergarten through high school.â€?
Where Sheâ€™s From: Gorgeous Amber Tennyson was born in Queens, New York and partially raised there and in Atlanta, GA. Sheâ€™s also lived in Miami, FL, Michigan, and in San Diego, CA.Â
Amber is grand-daughter of William â€œBillâ€? Tennyson, a self-taught Louisiana-born musician who gained renown as Harlem composureâ€”he was one of the first Black men at the Julliard.
â€œMy mother taught me the basics of linguistics, writing and art; very important skills that have carried me a long way,â€? she tells The Black Star News. â€œMy father taught me about operating a business and computer science. I have a talented family and I'm blessed for that.â€?
Amber attended Georgia State University and she will be continuing school, learning motion picture production. Sheâ€™s also fluent in French and Spanish.
Amber is a model, actress, musician, painter, linguist and business woman.
Amber is undaunted by the challenges young entrepreneurs face. â€œSuccessâ€”that's all I allow myself to see because I work hard, and no one knows how much drive you put into your own goals other than yourself,â€? she explains. â€œI have a lot of projects planned and expect them to be of major interest.â€?
Sheâ€™s had business savvy since childhood. Her father was a computer science educator and business owner at the beginning stages of the Internet and computer graphic design industries. â€œWe would print newsletters together and I would promote whatever we were doing from Michigan to New York,â€? she recalls.
â€œI first started my own cleaning and pick-up service in the summers with my friends at age eight then later in high school sold product like sunglasses, jewelry, and candy.â€? At age 18, she incorporated her first business, Last Nomad Crafts, Inc. and sold handcrafted goods wholesale to boutiques and attended festivals, private showings, and arranged art shows where she would show and sell her paintings. â€œI currently have a collection of about 16 paintings,â€? she notes.

Her own musical influences embraces R&B, HipHop, Reggaeton, Dance/Club Music. â€œIt makes you think of a mix of Sade and Vanity with a vital component of HipHop, but very much my own,â€? she says of her music. â€œWhile producing my own music I produced my own sound, although I've been influenced by so many different styles from urban to international I never listened to the music in vain. I try to make a whole new style that fits the times and brings things to another level.â€?
Where Sheâ€™s Heading: â€œWithout BRAINPOWER beauty can be taken advantage of,â€? she warns other aspiring models. â€œThe most of us may have to learn from experience and grow out of our naive youth, but brainpower is what sets you apart. Brainpower is your own wealth, something you've worked hard at and no one can take away from you; If you have it you can always use it to help you in making tough business decisions.â€?
When Amber is ready to step out, how does she prepare? â€œI'm not too big on material things, but I do like designers like Roberto Cavalli and Marithe + Francois Girbaud,â€? she says. â€œI like sports cars from the Corvette Z06 to the Bugatti Veyron, computer gadgets, and fine jewelry.â€?
