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

Modeling has given me the opportunity to meet amazing people and visit incredible locations. It has given me the ability to build my personal confidence and push my comfort level. I have been able to see parts of the world and not only see the beauty the world has to offer but also see the beauty of the people in those locations. Modeling has motivated me to instill confidence and ambition in those around me. Modeling has allowed me to be a role model for all women and to inspire.

Why should you be voted Maxim's Finest?

I want to be a role model & advocate for all women. I believe that beauty comes in all ages, shapes, sizes & ethnic backgrounds. I am a strong, independent & beautiful woman, inside & out. I have the strength, ability & confidence to stand out in a crowd & adapt to any situation. I am not afraid to try new things or push my limits. I am a leader that will not shy away from a challenge. I exude what Maxim readers are looking for. I am versatile to rock anything.

What would you do with $25,000?

I would re-invest the money into my modeling career. When I go on photo shoots to foreign countries I like to visit remote villages where the people are less fortunate than I. I like to bring them basic necessities for life, health & support. I will bring small toys to children of those villages so they can enjoy “just being kids”. Having this money will afford me the opportunity to visit more of these locations & help where I can.
