I consider myself a hardworking goal chaser and I am always aspiring to a higher level in life.

Why would you like to win?

To break the stigma that a woman "can't be sexy and smart." I just graduated from med school last June and that was my biggest accomplishment to date! I would love the chance to show the world that it's okay to own your beauty and your brains- you don't have to to choose between the two. Here's to women! May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them!

What would you do with the money if you win?

Pay off some of my student loan debt, donate some toward the muscular dystrophy foundation and give some to my mother who has supported me so much throughout my life.
