Thank you

On behalf of Maxim's Finest and Homes for Wounded Warriors, we would like to thank you for helping us support our injured veterans.

What has been the highlight of your modeling career so far?

Being an inspiration for others. Not only the typical "love your body" image, but that you can have a chronic injury or something that can't be seen on the outside by others that drastically changes your life and you can gain the courage overcome it somehow. A way to go on, love yourself, and find your purpose when all seems lost.

Why should you be voted Maxim's Finest?

There's been a lot of hard times in my life. Sacrificing everything since I was a small child to become a professional ballet dancer was hard work but was also my life, who I was, my soul. In the height of my career I was injured and have a injury in my neck which causes chronic pain and issues. It has taken away my life as I've always known it. Through that tho I have found ways to keep going. Modeling gives me the outlet that I have missed not being able to dance. Maxim needs a ballerina

What would you do with $25,000?

Simple answer. Help my family. My mother has given everything so that I was able to reach my dreams from a small child to even now. She deserves help back. Without the extra money, I cannot do anything and it kills me.
