A rose by any other name, would not be as sweet as this series of images from our new Miss June, Ali Rose. But sweet doesn’t mean she’s not feisty as well, and we loved her tattoo “Stand Tall” as a symbol of confidence and empowerment. Ali says she believes “everybody is beautiful in their own way and you shouldn’t want to be anybody else but yourself.” Coming from a Spanish, Mexican and Sicilian background means she’s got her fiery side –the wildest place she’s ever made love is in the back of an ambulance. But she’s also a down-to-earth young woman who enjoys hanging out with friends, going for a hike, or doing something outdoorsy when she’s not busy on set. We are privileged to be the first magazine in which she is published, and we look forward to watching her career blossom.
“I was tall as a little girl and everybody told me I should model, I didn’t get into it until 2012 and I went straight to PLAYBOY! And what a fun adventure it has been. I’ve learned that everybody is beautiful in their own way and you shouldn’t want to be anybody else but yourself.”
