Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Haitian Beauty, Sandy Jean Philippe recently hit the Hollywood scene when she led a team of full-figured models to win the grand prize on E! Networks “Bank of Hollywood”, produced by Ryan Seacrest. The grand prize would provide financing for Sandy and her company “One Chance Entertainment”, and six of their models on a six-city “Evolution of Curves”, tour showcasing fashion for the curvy, full-figured woman. As a young and very ambitious teen, Sandy recalls being told that her hopes to be a model and actress were not realistic because she just didn’t fit the “mold”. These comments would prove to be the driving force to her success. After graduating from college, she packed her bags and headed west to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams in acting and modeling. Sandy landed a role in the movie Trapped: Haitian Nights starring Vivica Fox and Kenya Moore, scheduled to be in theaters summer 2010. Other credits include, “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant” and most recently, she landed a Music Video appearance with recording artist Macy Gray for her upcoming single. Sandy is a vivacious young woman with a big heart who loves to entertain. She possesses all the qualities to be successful in the industry and in the community. This Haitian Bombshell is prepared to take the world by storm. “Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, race, and ethnicities. I am the Essence of a Woman. I represent the Fabulous B’s Beauty, Brains, and Boldness”, says Sandy.
