MUA: Lucrecia Suarez – Aura Makeup Art

“Hi! My name is Danielle Menchen, and I am a 22-year-old professional model from Tampa, Florida. I’m relatively new to the modeling world but have loved every second of it so far! I’ve always had a passion for fitness and working hard on my body, and modeling has helped me take that to the next level by turning it into a career. Some of my interests include fitness, I’ve competed in two bikini shows placing in the top 2 in both, and music, particularly going to music festivals and events where I get to meet new people. I’m extremely outgoing and love exploring and traveling as much as I can and meeting new friends along the way! My goal is to continue to excel in this career and get to model and travel the world while I do it. Follow along with me on my journey through Instagram I’m just getting started!”
