Mariya Anissimova

I'm hard working, adventurous, dedicated, and I love modelling and travelling. Winning the Maxim Cover Girl Contest would mean the world.


Why would you like to win?

I have always been interested in modelling and it would be an honour to land the Maxim cover. The exposure would unequivocally help me become better known within the modelling industry and would propel my modelling career. I could then use my platform to advocate against pertinent issues such as racism, homophobia, sexism, and misogyny.


What would you do with the money if you win?

I would put the money towards university, as I am starting my undergraduate degree in September. The cash prize would go a long way in helping me pay for law school and achieving my dream of becoming an international human rights lawyer.
