Before she became a muse for rappers and a fashion icon, Amber Rose was a modest girl from South Philly. She even treated her Twitter followers to a guided tour of her hometown hotspots last year (including her favorite cheesesteak spot!), with the caption, "U never know where ur journey will begin and where it will end."
