LOS ANGELES — Sofia Rose was profiled this weekend by the Daily Beast’s Aurora Snow, in a piece that emphasized Rose’s humanitarian work, for which she has received a BBW Award.
“We created the award to honor the stars who go above and beyond to help the world and are a fantastic ambassador of the BBW community,” Eliza Allure, founder of the BBW Awards show, told Snow. “I think it’s a way of living your life that keeps in perspective how different and unsafe this world could be for others. Humanitarians recognize their privilege and use it as a platform to uplift others.”
“I do a lot of mentoring and coaching for a lot of the girls,” Rose explained to Snow, the Daily Beast sex worker-beat reporter who successfully pivoted from adult performance to a writing career. “And when I say mentoring it’s not ‘let me teach you the business,’ it’s more of ‘let me mentally prepare you for what you’re going to deal with.'”
“The industry can be very catty but I choose to rise above it,” Rose added. “As a whole, I never want to see anyone in this industry hurt, even if I’m not on speaking terms and you need something or need to reference something, you can still ask. We’re already at a disadvantage, we don’t need to make it worse for each other.”
