The Career of Yaris
Yaris Sanchez, who wanted to be an actress since she was a youngster, went to The High School of Fashion Industries, but her mother couldn’t fully finance her education.
Yaris also became a teen mother at the age of 15, which made things even more difficult for her because she had to combine education and motherhood while still looking for work to support both. She began her career at The Children’s Place as a part-time employee.
She began interested in video modeling as a type of acting when she was 17 years old. In fact, once her school won the Seventeen Magazine prom sweepstakes, the prom became a high-profile event, with notable guests such as Kid Cudi performing.
She took recommendations from her pals on the sets of music videos in order to earn some extra money to pay for her ticket to the event, outfit, and other accessories.
A friend who worked as a stripper told her that it was a great way for young mothers who couldn’t work during the day to get quick money. At the age of 18, she became a stripper, but she continued to hunt for work in music videos on Craigslist.
After responding to a Craigslist post for the official remix version of The Dream’s song “Rockin’ That Thang,” her life took a positive turn.
A-listers such as Fabolous, Rick Ross, Ludacris, and Juelz Santana appeared in the video, in which she danced. She quickly established herself as a regular presence in rap music videos.
Scandals & Controversies
The fact that Yaris Sanchez began her career as a video vixen and stripper has exposed her to a number of traumatic events, according to her.

While many people are biased towards her and stereotype her based on her previous occupations, she is hell-bent on defying all preconceptions and emerging as a versatile artist who is always changing.
Her debut show, “Never The Girl Next Door,” based on the women’s liberation movement and influenced by 1950s pin-up model Bettie Page, addressed cultural preconceptions in 2015.
During 2009-10, she was related to rapper Lloyd Banks, and in 2011, she was rumored to have dated rapper, Joe Budden. She has, however, insisted on being unmarried in numerous interviews.
She began dating rapper Ab-Soul in 2013 and has since attended several events with him. It was reported in mid-2014 that she was expecting his kid, but he later clarified that he is a father figure to her daughter from a previous relationship.
