She returned for Cycle 8 and not only made it on to the show, but won. She has gone on to have a fairly lucrative modeling career working for brands like Lot29, Amaya swimwear and Custo Barcelona and appearing in four billboard campaigns in New York's Times Square. One of the more popular winners for Latino fans, she has been honored numerous times in Latin magazines and served as La Madrina in the annual New York Puerto Rican parade. She's currently working in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.
