Stephanie Retuya

Height: 176cm
Weight: 54kg
Nationality: Filipino
Ethnicity: Filipino

Stephanie is a part-time model and a full-time mother to a baby girl. She only started modeling about a year ago, and discovered that modeling is not work to her because she feels completely in her element. Her budding modeling career was soon interrupted because she got pregnant, and she now feels that surge of desire to continue pursuing what she believes is meant for her. For someone who is very passive and shy, she is busting a big move to fulfill her dream by taking part in this reality TV competition. She has never travelled outside of her country, and grew up thinking she was freakishly tall and did not talk much to people.
