1. What inspired you to get into this industry?
A desire to see how much I could accomplish, as well as the creative aspect of a putting together a great shot. I love fashion, plus what girl doesn't want to have a bunch of great photos of herself to look back at when she is older?
2. How long have you been modeling?
I started doing pageants in high school and then took a break, and started modeling again 7 years ago.
3. Who is your favorite model?
4. Tell us something random about yourself.
I won $15,000 on Wheel of Fortune Soap Stars Week. My partner was Susan Lucci's daughter, Liza Huber. I'm also an intensive care unit nurse.
5. What are you most proud of?
I've been featured in both US and Mexican editions of Maxim Magazine, as well as TransWorld Surf and many other magazines. I'm also proud of the travel adventure web series I created, called "Escapades with Andria Lea™". I host and produce the show, as well as edit all the footage. A lot of hard work goes into creating each episode, and I love sharing my adventures, world travels, and extreme activities with viewers.
6. Upcoming projects?
Over the next few months I'll be continuing to produce Season 2 episodes of my web series, and explore hosting opportunities in Los Angeles.
7. When it's all said and done, what do you want to be remembered as?
The girl with not just the looks- but also the brains, personality, and sense of adventure who stands apart from the rest and really connects with my audience.
