Hey Parnia, congratulations on your MAXIM cover. How do you feel? I feel so blessed! It’s always been a dream of mine to do a cover for MAXIM.
How did you feel going into this shoot? I felt very confident. I love knowing I’m about to get glammed up. Apart from skin care and lots of booty workouts there wasn’t anything special I did to prepare for this shoot.
Well, you look gorgeous. When do you feel sexy?
Thank you. All it takes is an abs, butt and thighs workout, a shower, some Victoria Secret lingerie and, like Beyoncé said, I’m feelin’ myself!
Tell us about the theme.
Well, it’s a fitness theme as I had a boxing fight in Melbourne this month against a girl from Thailand that I was preparing for at the time of the shoot, so it was a perfect opportunity to incorporate it.
How did you get into boxing?
My dad was in the military, so from a young age he made sure I could protect myself. I work out three times a week and boxing train five to six days a week depending on my schedule.
Have you ever needed to use your boxing skills public?
Yeah, as soon as someone touches me in an unwelcoming way, the hands go up to the chin.
We also hear you fancy yourself as a bit of a rapper?
Yeah, since a young age I’ve had a lot of love for Hip Hop and as I got older I found that writing songs and rapping was the best way to express myself and sometimes my only escape. The EP I have coming out before I go back to LA, in a few months, is going to be very versatile. I put up a Soundcloud link on my Instagram bio quite regularly if anyone wants to check it out.
How did you come to be the new Ultra Tune girl?
Ultra Tune narrowed it down to 10 potential models, I went through a series of interviews and now I’m living the dream!
What does your role as ambassador involve?
I represent Ultra Tune anywhere and everywhere I go or in anything I do. I’m very lucky with the opportunities it has opened up to me and it’s a great company to work for.
