“We are so happy, so happy that there are free doses of smiles for everyone, a hug, a little dance. Because our happiness doesn’t come from what we posses, it comes from within, from strong family bonds, from our relationship with each other.”
Rosanna’s Childhood and Education
Born and raised in Valledupar, a small town in Northen Colombia, Rosanna Cordoba is the youngest of five siblings. Her parents worked in education, so studying and receiving high grades was extremely important for Rosanna.
Three of her brothers went on to become surgeons and one went into the education field. As for Rosanna, she received her master’s degree in tax law, which was an extremely prestigious degree in Colombia that only the students with the highest grades could obtain.
Outside of academics, Rosanna spent her youth learning salsa dance, enjoying music, and attending big family gatherings. All of this was an integral part of the culture in Northen Colombia.
As Rosanna said; “Growing up in Northern Colombia means salsa, vallenato music, going to the river, big family gatherings and salsa. Did I mention salsa? When Colombians go out at night, dancing is more important than talking and I love to dance.” – Rosanna Cordoba
Moving to America
In 2013, Rosanna made a huge transition in her life. In a search for new opportunities, mainly bikini and fitness modeling, she decided to take the plunge and move to the USA.
Rosanna says, although she’s a proud Colombian, she moved out of her country because there simply weren’t enough opportunities for her to stay.
Describing the contrast between Colombia and America, Rosanna said; “I am a proud Colombian, I love my country, love it, but the USA is such a wonderful place filled with so much opportunity.
In Colombia, we work hard to become something that will pay us to live. It is hard and risky to try and do anything else. I would never try to be a fashion designer, blogger or model in Colombia. But here the encouragement and support are overwhelming. ”
Blogger and Online Sensation
Even though she was faced with the uncertainty of living in a new country, Rosanna’s bold decision to move eventually paid off. As soon as she moved to the USA, Rosanna started her online blog where she posted fitness and lifestyle-related content.
Rosanna hoped that through her blog posts, she’d get some exposure that would allow her to start working with modeling companies. In time, her ambitions came to fruition.
After several months of daily blogging, Rosanna started getting her first offers for modeling work. Thrilled with the opportunities, she began to work with various modeling companies across America.
Rosanna also became a social media star in the process – opening up her online profiles, where she’s since gathered a large fan base that keeps growing daily.
“What are the odds that we are here today? That thought unfolds on my head me every time I travel. Do you think about this?”
As a bikini model, Rosanna’s favorite exercises are cardio, which tones her physique. Along with an occasional strength workout which shapes and sculpts her muscles.
Rosanna also enjoys doing bodyweight workouts. They are an effective way of getting some exercise in even when she travels and doesn’t have an access to a gym.
“Grateful for my life. I’m fortunate to enjoy traveling and be happy a considerable part of my time, yet I know there are others not so happy and not so lucky. And for that, I don’t take it for granted. I wish you all happiness. Tons of love and good vibes!”
Rosanna is well aware of the importance of a healthy nutrition when it comes to her looks and health.
However, she also encourages people to find balance in their diet, without completely restricting themselves to foods that they like.
“Remember, there can be sadness behind a big smile and that the person you admire might not have all those qualities you think he/she has, despite what the photo caption says.”
