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?

I began modeling at the age of three. I was considered a natural, yet I had no idea what that actually meant. As I've grown in my experiences, I've seen modeling as a way to connect fully with the present moment. It has also proven to be a way of inspiring others as well as a way to continue to be inspired. Modeling is living art.

Why should you be voted Maxim's Finest?

I feel I have the opportunity to promote the kind of woman that I am. The type of woman who is strong willed, outspoken, talented, intelligent as well as beautiful. Who exists not by default, but on her own terms. A woman of color, whose colors have been passed down from generations of beautiful, strong, and empowered women. The most modern definition of an American woman. This has been my dream for many years, and your vote would be like a kiss, from your heart to mine. Many thanks in advance.

What would you do with $25,000?

When I win, I plan to use the prize money to advance my business goals! I am currently back to school studying international business. I have been applying my creative gifts toward fashion design for over ten years. Within that time I have been fortunate to work with some amazing talent. My goals are to establish my company,, to ultimately be able to give back to budding and working artists in need of support. Creativity is life, I want to us help each other live it!
