Paola Shea is Perfect
by Tommy Gimler
Paola Shea is pretty unbelievable. She has been featured in Maxim magazine, Maxim.com, MTV’s Band of Ballers, Super Street Magazine (cover), MMA Sports Magazine (featured model), GoDaddy.com, Commercial Complex Magazine, and other ads, videos and campaigns.
Paola grew up in a small town in eastern Connecticut. From a young age she knew that she had an innate ability to entertain. Her zest for life and personable attitude would not be subdued for long. Dancing is a passion for Paola and her influences include Michael Jackson and Tina Turner. Halfway through her academic career at Central Connecticut State University she was awarded a dance scholarship to Blade Academy. Paola saw this scholarship as a chance to embark on an amazing journey to explore her creative side and with her bags packed she moved to New York City.
During her tenure at Blade, Paola felt a strong urge to combine her passion for dance with her love for children and joined a local community center as a dance instructor. Through her various contacts she made while dancing she was introduced to commercial print and glamour modeling, and her interest was piqued yet again as she entered this new industry.
On a more personal note, Paola is influenced by and admires such figures as Yoko Ono, Kate Moss, the Dalai Lama, and the late Gia Carangi. Her favorite musical artists are Enigma, Donna Summers, Michael Jackson, Temper Trap, Jay-z, Sam Sparrow, and many other 80′s rock bands. Hobbies of Paola’s include watching movies, traveling, and tasting new and exciting food. Paola now strives to be a well rounded person and does everything from trying new activities to interacting with a diverse group of individuals in order to attain this goal. Her determination and perseverance are some of her best qualities. I’m going to go with “her body” as well…
