Hope is a fiery, foxy 35-year-old mother of three from New York, who describes herself as funny, focused, versatile, and as quiet as a mouse or as loud as a lion'. From the time she was a little girl, modeling has been her dream, and she thinks that now might be her time and place. Hope believes that beauty comes from within; you are as beautiful as you feel, and considers herself to be a good model because of her versatility and ability to turn it on and turn it off when required. She thinks her best physical features are either her eyes or lips (its a toss up), and names Twiggy and Alec Wek as her favorite models. Hope feels very proud of having overcome a difficult past, and of raising her three children. She presently works as a taxi and limousine leasing agent.
