Fourteen days, eleven of our gorgeous models and two epic luxury resorts. Yes, this is how MAXIM does Phuket…
Tell us a little bit about yourself, Audrey.
I’m very grateful and blessed to have lived a very dimensional and fulfilling life at such a young age already. I’m a single 20-year-old, I’ve travelled to over 20 countries, I’m currently working at a luxury car dealership and proud mum to a Samoyed puppy. I grew up a dancer and was trained in everything from ballet and pointe – to drill team with high kicks and hip-hop. I’m passionate about giving back – I foster dogs as well as tutor children at the local middle and high schools in my area. I’m beyond thankful that my parents raised me to not only be kind, but to be ambitious and intelligent as well. I created my lifestyle with hard work, nothing was handed to me.
What is your best asset?
My eyes. I’ve got bright green eyes from my dad’s side, but my left eye is half brown on the top because of a birthmark. My grandma always said the old saying that “eyes are the windows to the soul” and I love mine. My best non-physical trait would either be my work ethic or kindness and generosity.
When do you feel sexy?
When I’m the best version of myself. Self-confidence comes from within, so when I’m taking care of my body physically and my soul mentally – that’s the sexiest. I could be in sweatpants with no make-up or all dolled up in lingerie for a photoshoot and it makes no difference.
What do you do when you’re not posing for MAXIM?
You can most likely find me at my day job, volunteering or spending time with friends and family. I work at an Aston Martin dealership and my family fosters dogs for local rescues.
Describe yourself in five words.
Driven, kind, easy-going, trustworthy, ambitious.
What do you look for in a man?
Physically – I’m a sucker for dark hair and light eyes and preferably at least the same height as me in my heels. More importantly, though, is how a man makes me feel. If someone brings out the best in me, encourages me, makes me laugh and can be a true partner to me then I’m sold!
Finally, where would you like to be in five years?
One goal is to have visited 30 countries by the time I’m 30, which means five or more in the next five years to stay on track! I also want to have written a book, settled into a career and learn a new language.
