Stephanie Hasegawa

She grew up in Southern California and was always into athletics.  So, when sports model Stephanie Hasegawa moved to Las Vegas seven years ago, she quickly picked up some new sports like amateur boxing, Muay Thai fighting and motor cross.  She's been a popular runway and commercial model and is one of the most popular boxing ring girls for major fights.  At 5'8", 125 lbs., Stephanie will be competing at the Model America to further her career.  However, she says her passions are diverse.  "I'm planning on starting a nursing program next year.  I love to help people because I have a lot of compassion."  Stephanie says she's still planning to model but is also concerned with her long term future.  "Modeling is fun and exciting, but I need to focus on my 'day job', too."

Anchal Joseph

One of the industry's hottest models attended the Universe Weekend in Miami but wasn't competing.  Runway and commercial model superstar Anchal Joseph was the guest of former Model Universe Champion R.L. Bond and said she enjoyed the aura of health and natural fitness and the hundreds of good looking people.   "Since appearing on America's Next Top Model, Cycle 7, I have devoted some time to working with a physical trainer in the hopes of gaining a more toned and defined figure," said Anchal.  "In the show, I was very self-conscious about my figure, which was quite fuller than the other girls."  Hopefully, we will see Anchal on stage at Model America in Las Vegas.
