Joanna Orellana

The secret to modeling is not being perfect. You have to be given what’s needed by nature, and what’s needed is to bring something new.

Everyone has a secret talent, what is yours?

My secret talent is being able to take a negative situation and find the positive in it. It may sound simple & cheesy, but I've been able to endure the most tragic and difficult times of my life and still walk out the other side with a smile on my face. Taking a terrible experience and growing from it has allowed me to be more appreciative of everything and everyone in my life. I want to share this "secret talent" with everyone, as I believe anyone is capable of it.

If you were voted our cover girl, what would you do with $10,000?

If I were to be voted Cover girl, I would use 10,000 to build a community for the disabled, and non disabled children. I think being around other that are unique is something special. I would also give to the hospital that helped my son. I believe giving rather than keeping could make such a difference.
