She Made Her Own Social Distancing Bubble — As A 12-Foot-Wide Dress

“I feel so much more comfortable doing the shoot with her, because behind the camera, she’s always like, ‘Go! You look beautiful!'” Rose said. “Like, ‘Oh, my gosh, stunning! Do a twirl!’ It’s so funny because I edit through all the audio of the video she takes, and it’s all her just shouting encouragement.”
Rose’s mother and father, who sometimes plays a supporting role in her work, approve of her side hustle. As a college senior, Rose’s last six months of classes have gone virtual, so — like many others in her situation — she has moved back in with her family, which is part Iranian, part Chinese and part Lithuanian.

Her parents also support her postgrad plan: to try out being a full-time content creator and artist, at least for a year. Rose knows herself, she said, and knows she can hustle her way back into the corporate world if need be.

“I’m a realist enough to the point where I don’t know if this is going to be a forever thing,” she said. “And I’m always keeping my options open to come back to a more stable job. But I know I’d regret it if I didn’t try it.”
