Early life and education
Rocsi was still very young when her family moved to New Orleans, Louisiana USA, thus her American nationality. She is very secretive when it comes to her parents, and nothing about them is known.
Rocsi started dreaming about becoming a model while attending elementary school, which is why she played various sports and paid attention to what she ate so as not to gain weight. She attended West Jefferson High School in Harvey in Louisiana, and was a cheerleader, however, cheerleading came with a cost as she struggled with anorexia for years, only revealing on 30 July 2009 in an episode of “106 & Park” that she had struggled with it. Upon matriculating in 1999, Rocsi enrolled at Nicholls State University from which she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 2003.
Appearances in TV and radio shows
Rocsi then moved to Dallas, Texas, and joined one of the city’s most popular radio stations The Beat, working as a host. She was praised for her skills, and was thus invited to move to Boston’s Hot as their DJ. The year 2004 saw Rocsi move again, to Chicago, Illinois where she joined the Power 92 WPWX-FM radio station as a DJ, and was nicknamed ‘The Midday Mami’.
She went on to appear in several TV Specials too, including “2006 BET Awards Nominations Live”, “BET Hip-Hop Awards” and “Bet Awards 2011”.
