Maria Gimena

 

Plus model Maria Gimena was selected from the four finalists as the competition winner and was named the Face of Torrid for 2017.  Maria wins a modeling contract and a wonderful wardrobe from Torrid as well. This curvy beauty is 24 years old and was born in Uruguay. She is now a New Jersey resident. She is also multi-lingual(Spanish, Italian, and English) and quite the stunner.

Like many young women, Maria experienced criticism from some of her peers about her appearance and size but eventually overcame those experiences. Now she is very confident in herself and her looks; and very justifiably so.  Looking forward to seeing more of Maria in the coming year.
