With a flair for dramatic images and a boundless energy for her work, Amanda (Amandy) Ranger has leaped up the social media mountain and attained a following and a fandom that is rapidly accelerating. A social worker by trade, her passion for her chosen occupation reflects her personal drive and motivation, especially when it comes to making a real difference. But to balance her life, taking up modelling as a “hobby” has taken on a new path of epic adventure.
Her fans, and the photographers who are lining up to shoot her, are all very happy about that.
Name: Amanda Ranger
Occupation: Social Work with the mental health population and the forensic mental health population.
Education: B.S.W/ R.S.W & Model (independent)
Stats: I am an eccentric, outgoing, energetic, motivated, odd, self diagnosed ADD, kind of a geek type of girl. I love people, travelling, trying new things, conquering new goals and living life to the fullest.
How did you get started on your current career track?
I always wanted to help people so initially I went into psychology and then decided social work was a better direction and would allow for more job opportunities. Then I recently started modelling which has become a hobby that is fun, creative and sometimes pays some bills 🙂 I have the best of both worlds if you ask me.
What gives you the most satisfaction as an artist?
I Always love seeing the finished project of anything I do but with my inability to focus on something for a lengthy period of time this can be challenging lol However, with modelling I can always focus in on what I am doing because I am able to move around a lot.
Do you have a personal work philosophy?
Set goal…achieve…repeat! that’s my motto. I actually came up with this myself thought it was pretty nifty.
If you weren’t doing this, what could you see yourself doing?
Amazingly I am doing the two things I have wanted most from life. All you need is motivation, drive, energy and creativity to do the things you want in life! But if I could do ANYTHING it would involve being part of a job where I can travel the world, experience new things and meet new people.
What are you working on right now?
I am submitting some information to GlamModlz to be featured in their magazine and maybe even be on the cover…woot woot! Fingers crossed!
What do you first notice about a guy?
Why do they always ask this question? lol [because we wanna know ~ ed.] My answer is always the same: his teeth and eyes. I love nice pearly whites (preferably not fake teeth lol) and eyes because you can definitely know a lot about a person by looking into their eyes.
What gets you interested?
If the conversation is interesting and is at least one with substance, I am more apt to want to spend time with that person. Remember body language is just as important as the spoken word boys!
What keeps you interested?
Communication, romance and showing your significant other love is so important. How could I not like someone who is able to provide those things? So far I have had no luck but I am keeping m eyes open.
What’s your number one deal breaker (either on first meeting or in a relationship)?
If you are in a relationship of any kind already, or lie at any point in time about something that is important (little white lies are allowed as long as it does not hurt anyone). Also see the Turn-offs section…same applies here!
This is so cliche but I like the Tall, Dark and Handsome type.
Bad teeth, body odour of any kind and a negative attitude.
To stay in shape, what’s your basic diet look like?
I eat whatever I feel like at the time. I have one cheat day a week which is usually Sunday, but quite frankly if I want chips or a chocolate bar Monday though Saturday I have them. I know it will catch up to me someday but so far so good.
What sort of fitness plan, if any, do you follow?
I go to Goodlife Monday to Friday at lunch time and participate in the classes. Body Combat is my favourite; it’s like kick boxing. Otherwise I stay active in other ways like rollerblading, skiing, hiking, biking, surfing…I also tried water skiing and I didn’t even fall once…yay me!
What’s next for you? What’s your next big idea or project?
Well I always have a new goal set so next is to go on a paid shoot somewhere tropical!!
Favourite workout tip: Squat…Lunge…Squat…Lunge best way to lift your bum 🙂 Also always stretch before and after a workout!
Favourite recipe: Oh no I am not your typical girl I hate cooking my favourite recipe is anything frozen and fast.
iPhone or Android: iPhone
What are you driving: I drive a Nissan 350Z convertible, her name is Charlie and my winter beater is a Malibu and it has no name 😛
One thing guys should know when talking to a beautiful woman: Make sure you make EYE contact…otherwise just be yourself and be confident.
One quirky thing about you that never turns up in interviews:
I am assuming this is fairly common but I am admitting to it….I love cranking the tunes and dancing around my house…then I check out my awesome moves in the mirror (hahaha jokes about my moves being awesome that is!).
