Many high school graduates travel for leisure right after graduation. As soon as Model of the Week, Amy Bracco, graduated high school, she headed straight to Paris, Sydney and London strictly for business. Amy, a Walnut Creek, CA native who was discovered at a local modeling competition, had modeled during Summer and Winter vacations in Los Angeles and San Francisco, but her travels overseas allowed her to beef up her portfolio. She is currently based in New York City.
You may recognize her from ad campaigns like Guess? Diesel, Coach, DKNY, Tretorn, Dove, and Clinique. The model has also graced the covers of magazines and has done TV ads for Pantene, Samsung, Oil of Olay and Garnier Fructis.
Check out her beauty interview with BELLA.
