On behalf of Maxim Cover Girl and Homes for Wounded Warriors, we would like to thank you for helping us support our injured veterans.

Everyone has a secret talent, what is yours?

The one talent that most people don't know about me is my arts & crafts. I love to try "do it yourself," crochet, and sewing. Trying to create something out of nothing, shows me there is art everywhere. I started out with making pot holders with my grandfather, then cross stitch with my grandmothers. It just build itself for there. I taught myself have to latch-hook and crochet when I got older. Sewing was a skill you need when clothes had holes and ballet shoes needed straps.

If you were voted our cover girl, what would you do with $25,000?

If I won cover girl and received $25,000, I would probably split it into parts. The first part would go into savings like IRA or individual stocks that I have. Then, the other part would be reinvest into my career such as building my portfolio or acting lessons. I also see myself giving some of the money to a charity such as anti-cyberbullying or an organization that helps our society get better.
