Born and raised in Washington, D.C., Rochelle Gobantes was nothing short of ambition and dreams. She determinedly graduated the University of Maryland, College Park in 2016 – attending class full-time all while working full-time to afford it. Shortly after, she started getting into modeling and acting as another form of creative expression and art other than her childhood hobby, dance. What started out as fun and favors has not only become extra opportunities to make income, but also has fully blossomed into a passion and intention to turn it into a fiery career.
