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 Monic Perez. This Puerto Rico native started modeling after her professor in nursing school mentioned she'd be great at it. And although she's not a nurse just yet, Monic explains that she still loves taking care of people and plans to go back to school when her modeling career is over. 

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