Why would you like to win?

Honestly, 25 has been my best year yet. I've learned a lot about myself, backpacked solo, finished my undergrad(s) with honours and made some life-changing decisions. Winning Maxim's Cover Girl Contest would be the perfect way to finish my 25th year.

What would you do with the money if you win?

If I won the contest I would put the money towards completing my masters of architecture, maybe in Berlin. I would also donate some of the money to Humane Society International to help fund various animal welfare and protection issues, such as fighting and ending the dog meat trade.
