Meet the Model: Adaora

***************

Connecticut native and two-time SI Swimsuit model Adaora is unique in a lot of ways. She has eight siblings. She loves her landline telephone. She is quite possibly the only swimsuit model who had to shave her hair off for missionary school (we don't actually keep track of those type of things). She's also done work for Garnier, Abercrombie and Fitch, JC Penney and Macy’s. SwimDaily caught up with Adaora to discuss her life and career. Here's what she had to say.

On her 2013 swimsuit shoot in Namibia: "It was really spectacular. My first time in the desert, first time experiencing winter weather in Africa. It was really cold in the morning but by afternoon it was hot so it was interesting experiencing the change in the weather. Also, shooting in the sand dunes was amazing."

On what her last meal would be if she was on death row: "If I was on death row my last meal would be three-course. Some crab cakes and then my main course would be Chicken Alfredo and for desert I'd have carrot cake. I LOVE carrot cake."

On her first (non-modeling) job: "I was waitressing at a restaurant in my town. My back hurt a lot when I was waitressing."
