Far and few models have a story as academically compelling as that of Jarah Mariano.
The Hawaii-born and Cali-raised Jarah is a stunning beauty, and although she has been modeling since the age of 15, she made sure her college backup plan was steady in place. With a flourishing career that's allowed her to be featured in Sports Illustrated and Victoria's Secret, just to name a few, she hasn't had to cash in on her Pace University education just yet.
GlobalGrind had the pleasure of catching up with the lovely Jarah to learn a little more about her and of course, to learn about what she dances to in her underwear!
Not just for her beauty, but for her brains as well, we are proud to call the gorgeous Jarah Mariano one of the sexiest girls in the world.

I know someone is a keeper when they... put me first and make me feel safe.
The best text message I ever received was.... probably something horrible from an ex so I knew that he wasn't a keeper.
When trying to grab someone's attention I...make eye contact, then completely ignore them.
