SI Swimsuit 2017 casting calls are underway and we can't get over all the beautiful babes coming through our office. 

As we sift through hundreds of gorgeous ladies to fill out our next rookie class, we're hoping you'll follow along! When we meet SI Swimsuit hopefuls, you will, too. So what are you waiting for? 

Next up is the beautiful Dayana Mendoza. This Venezuelan beauty was just 12-years-old when she was scouted and landed her first official job a few years later. And while Dayana loves traveling and exploring new places for work, she's also a fan of the simple things in life, like a long walk in the summer or a quiet afternoon spent in a coffee shop. 

Get to know more about Dayana in the video above, and be sure to keep coming back to Swim Daily for more 2017 SI Swimsuit Casting Calls!
