Veneza Perez Named Miss July 2013

Congratulations to 20-year old Miami native Veneza Perez! Veneza beat out a stacked field of Miss July hopefuls and will be rocking her new bikini from B. Swim and a $250 gift certificate from VonZipper for her efforts. We caught up with Veneza below to see what makes her tick…

Student and aspiring model.

Secret and/or hidden talent?
My hidden talent would probably be my flexibility and it wouldn't be a secret if I told you…

Got a boyfriend?
No boyfriend.

Are you a surfer girl?
I hope to soon get my own board and officially give myself that title; I've been hooked since I first got up on one!

Regular or goofyfoot?

Worst wipeout?
I was going to say my first time on a board but I think when I went uphill on a four wheeler might have been worse. It flipped over me but luckily I was okay. Got right back on it!

Favorite beach in the world?
I'd love to visit them all but my favorite so far has to be the beach in Gorgeous Saona Island in Dominican Republic.

If you could go on a date with any pro surfer who would it be?
Probably Julian Wilson, he has a killer smile.

Turn ons?
Confidence, nice smile, a fun, passionate, spontaneous personality who can make me laugh

Turn offs?
Cocky, close-minded, rude, and liars.

Tell us something nobody knows about you…
As silly as it may sound, I have a slight phobia of balloons

What would your last meal consist of?
Definitely lots of sushi and some ice cream cake.

Last book you read?
Thirteen Reasons Why.

Favorite movie?
Titanic and The Great Gatsby.

Anything else you'd like to add?
Modeling is truly what I love to do. I'm a huge travel junkie that's determined to do anything I can to help put an end to animal abuse. Thanks for choosing me!
