Janay Bankston

I love to laugh and I love the outdoors! On any given weekend you can find me hiking along the coast exploring some new territory.

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?

Meeting fascinating people would have to be the highlight beginning with the awesome photographers I've met to the other models. I love hearing all about their unique stories and aspirations.

Why should you be voted Maxim's Finest?

There are so many beautiful women in Maxim's Finest that my dream is people will look beyond the external and see my heart is genuine; hopefully, my inner beauty will shine through convincing voters that I am worthy of such an honor.

What would you do with $25,000?

I would use the $25,000 to further my education. I already have my BA in Social Science, but I would like to get my teaching credential so I can teach special education.
