Fourteen days, twelve of our gorgeous models and one epic luxury resort. Yes, this is how MAXIM does the “Cradle of Polynesia”…
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I was born and raised in New York, half in the city and half countryside, and started participating in pageants around age eight. After graduating from college I chose to further pursue modelling and also focus on the things that truly make me happy which include travel, time with my loved ones and constantly learning from others.
Are there any other funny anecdotes you can share about this Destination MAXIM photo shoot?
Learning all the quirky Aussie slang from the other girls. I’m still laughing inside.
What is your best asset?
I’m always smiling or laughing so I’d say my smile. Otherwise, my best asset is being able to adapt to any social environment and staying cultured.
When do you feel sexy?
After a good workout at the gym and any time I’m in front of the camera. Both give me a sense of adrenaline and the best confidence boost.
What would people be most surprised to know about you?
Being the clumsiest girl in the world, I’m pretty surprised I’ve never broken a bone or sprained anything!
What’s the funniest and/or scariest thing that’s happened to you on a photo shoot?
Aside from multiple nip-slips in public, being washed away by beach waves and encounters with bugs swarming my face, I’ve had an island pig attempt to bite me in the butt. Sometimes BTS can be the funniest moments.
What do you look for in a man?
Chemistry is number one, someone ambitious who can make me laugh and be able to handle my sassy side. Being able to hold a conversation with my circle of friends and family is always a plus, too.
What’s the weirdest thing someone has sent you via social media?
