Amber RoseAmber Rose has really come up over the last few months, ever since she began showing up on Kanye West’s arm across the globe.

The former exotic dancer has graduated from the stripper pole to the runway. She recently revealed that she’s inked a contract with New York’s prestigious Ford Modeling Agency, and is excite about the prospect of parlaying her arm candy fame into dollars.

Her on and off relationship with West has made her a tabloid mainstay, as well as her unique, blonde shaved head look.

The model blogged about the signing over at GlobalGrind.com, explaining that she dreamed of being famous all her life:

Today was a good day.

A few weeks ago, I told Uncle Russ that I do not want to “waste my celebrity,” as my celebrity is a gift to me, my family and the world … not only for me to get ahead, but for others as well. So, I am happy to announce that I have officially signed to the Ford Agency and I am moving to NY to pursue my modeling and acting careers! I am going to be taking acting classes in NY and will pursue the dreams that I have had my entire life. Today, I feel really blessed. I can actually look @ this contract and know that I have made some progress. Proof that when you work hard, good things do happen. I know it is just a piece of paper, but to me that contract represents millions of opportunities that are now before me. Again, it is not just to help me, but so I can make a greater impact around the world. The world is only what you make it…so when you have great opportunities, use them and make your dreams come true!

Love,
Amber Rose
