THE YAHOO GROUP!
KICKS IT ALL OFF
Raised in Upland, California, I was extremely shy growing up, contrary to my out-going attitude today.
One of my big dreams as a little girl was to compete in the Olympics in Equestrian, just like
International Velvet. I am still a big dreamer today. I accidently became interested in modeling while
attending a modeling/charm school at age 14. The classes, which were originally intended to help
conquer my timid ways, sparked a new interest. By the time I was 18, I had an agent and did my
best to juggle college and modeling. College had always been a must for Meriah.
While touring college campuses, I instantly fell in love
with the University of California at Santa Barbara. I knew I just had to get out of Upland and UCSB was
my type of place! I always wanted to live on the beach. I studied hard and played hard too! This big
party school did not stop me from graduating in four years with a 3.5 grade point average. I earned my
Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication and a minor in Health Science and Exercise.
Then to experience life even more to the fullest, I took off all of a sudden and backpacked through
Europe, Egypt, and Costa Rica. I learned that traveling is what makes me feel most free and like I am
truly living my life for ME!
I continued to take opportunities for travel seriously and went on to work in Toyko with a choreographer,
snowboard in Canada, and explore the Indonesian culture as well as travel through my own amazing country.
I have added more locations to my list on top of those. Modeling has given me great opportunities that I am
very grateful for.
Always health conscious, I am serious about taking care of my body and mind. i work out 4 days a week, religiously.
Cardio-kickboxing, jogging on the beach, weights, and yoga class. I always eat really healthy food first and
then I don’t feel so guilty when I occasionally pig out. Actually I do LOVE junk food, chocolate and also salty
junk food. A strong body needs a strong mind for balance so I have always loved to read, learn, and grow.
My quest for knowledge is immense.
As a Scorpio, I describe myself as independent, determined, passionate, emotional, intense, and adventurous.
I am very extreme as well, so I am either completely serious and reserved or a raging party animal. A lot of times
I want to be alone and other times, I have a strong desire to be social. I will be dressed to the nines one day and
the next day I look like a beach bum. It is usually difficult for people to truly figure me out. Bottom line is, I am a t
rue introvert who has always longed to be an extrovert; I am learning those skills. Every year I get braver with
every challenge I set for myself. That's how I gain strength.
