Meet The Model: Sami Miró @ DT Model Management

Likes include jazz, cheese and pot-bellied pigs.

Sami Miró is a city gal who spent her youth raising pot-bellied pigs in San Fran. She has since moved to LA to devote her time to modelling and hanging out with Zac Efron. She likes to unwind by eating buttloads of cheese and not making her bed. Ever.

Name:
Sami Miró

Agency:
DT Model Management.

Nickname:
My birth name is already a nickname. Boring but true.

Star Sign:
Libra.

Where are you from and where are you currently living?
I was born and raised in the heart of San Francisco, baby. I currently live in LA. What can I say, I'm a city girl.

What were you into in high school?
I was a dedicated gymnast throughout high school so I didn't have much of a social life. I was pretty shy and unsociable. My favorite courses were science, math and jazz band.

In what ways have you changed since then?
I have grown into more of a free spirit. Don't get me wrong I'm still an NPR Science Friday fan and, instead of singing in a band, I sing in the shower.

What did you do for your last birthday?
I stayed in with a friend, watched movies and ate an exorbitant amount of cheese.

If you could choose to stay a certain age forever what would it be?
26. It's the year that follows the dreaded quarter life crisis. You're still young enough to still be young but old enough to feel the pressure.

If you could have any animal as a pet, what would you choose?
Well my favorite animal is a manatee. But realistically it would be a pot-bellied pig. That might be cheating since I had two growing up.

What scares you most?
Bugs. Clusters of bugs … getting itchy just thinking about it.

Best piece of advice you ever received?
Focus on the solution — don't dwell on the problem.

What is a skill you wish you possessed?
The art of bed making.

What fictional character to you most relate to, and why?
The Little Mermaid. Don't we all?

What celebrity do you have a crush on?
Top secret. First name rhymes with snack.

Best Youtube clip you've ever seen?
My dad raised me on Jazz, so this Miles Davis live recording of 'So What' is for him:

Which 3 people 5 people (dead or alive) would be your dream party guests?
Larry David, Olivier Rousteing, Lauryn Hill, Karl Lagerfeld, and Rihanna.

Do you prefer crowds, small groups or being alone?
Small groups with close friends is the only thing that takes the cake over being alone.

What's in rotation on your iPod at the moment?
The one and only, Marc E. Bassy. Always.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
A happy, accomplished and fulfilled individual.

Will you send us a selfie?
If you ask nicely ;)
