What is your charity of choice, and why is it important to you?

Lost & Found Grief Center. Lost & Found helps children and their families that are in crisis from the loss of a loved one. It helps them put the pieces back together, so they can get up and put one foot in front of the other each day and regain a sense of a “new normal” in a household that is grief-stricken from its loss.

What do you think makes a woman beautiful?

 When a woman is happy, she radiates beauty. Finding that happiness is what makes someone beautiful. Everyone’s happiness comes in different forms, and so does beauty.

Why do you think you’re a 10 Most Beautiful Women finalist?

How are those experiences meaningful to you?
