Tanya Ariel is looking to win Maxim's cover girl contest and she has now moved on to another round. Go vote for her now by CLICKING HERE.

Here is her bio in her own words:

I have been modeling for a year now and I became a model for Ragazza Bazaar Modeling Agency a few months ago. I work from home as a content writer for various businesses and I have a background in multimedia journalism, a side baking business called Off the Deck Goods with my fiancé and we have a two-year-old daughter. I have done background work with Rosario Dawson in Briarpatch and I have been published as a model, writer and photographer which has been an incredible and surreal experience. Most days, you can find me at home or walking with my daughter, painting like Bob Ross, running all over the city and working out while blasting bands like Tool, Chevelle, System of a Down and Slipknot.

She gave an update as well after she moved on to the next round:

I’m just so grateful for everyone who has supported me. It’s an amazing feeling seeing all the support people have given me for this contest. I didn’t expect that to happen. I’m glad I’ve made it this far and that I get to represent my community.
