I was dared to audition for Playboy.

My cousin was the first who auditioned for it.

She had an absolute makeover, but didn’t get the gig.

She went from a punk rock chick to a new level of a woman.

I was poking her about the look and voiced out,

"I don't think you need to change everything about yourself—

To go and pursue that career."

She then challenged me to go audition randomly.

I was like, "game on!"

So I did it on the 14th of September, and drove down to San Diego.

Right on the spot, they offered me to be a playmate.

And to travel to Argentina for three months to become the new face of Playboy

It was the most unexpected thing in my life.

I took the chance of the opportunity in front of me.

I ended up working for Playboy for four years.

My face then was on the cover of Playboy within two years.

It's not for everyone, but it was an amazing experience.

In life, you’re going to get thrown curve balls.

Don’t be afraid to take a leap of faith in yourself, and never forget:

You don’t need other people’s approval to be happy & successful.
