Despite not winning the title of Asia’s Next Top Model, first runner-up Monika Sta. Maria still keeps on getting gigs in and out of the country.
Just recently, she was featured in Zalora Fashion Magazine’s fashion editorial featuring summer’s most chimed trend, Summer Boho. And can I just say that she just looked amazing! I think she even looks better than when she was in the show.
She also did an interview for the online magazine. Here’s the excerpt of that interview:
During our exclusive Summer Boho editorial shoot with Monica, we found some time for a coffee and the skinny on what really happened in the house, and what life has been like since Asia’s Next Top Model.
Congratulations on getting to 1st runner up on Asia’s Next Top Model, how has life been since finishing the competition?
Thank you! It has been so overwhelming since the competition! I felt so much love and support from everyone who watched the series. I feel so happy and blessed!
You won four challenges and had a strong media following throughout, don’t you feel slightly cheated?
Of course I was sad because I was so so close to the title! But after the show, the support that I felt from the viewers really cheered me up, they boosted my confidence because whilst on the show I proved that I have got what it takes!

Personally, my homegirl is my pick for the Top Model title but hey – a real top model is the one who could book jobs yeah? So here’s to Monika and her way to the top in and out of Asia!
