Aja Marie likes to call herself an entertainer. With her black hair, brown eyes and full lips, it’s no surprise that Aja became a model, but she’s more than just a pretty face – she’s an acrobat, too, and she takes her gravity-defying act with her wherever she goes. “I’m a lyra performer,” she says. “Otherwise known as the aerial hoop. I love to wear costumes and really keep the crowd entertained.” Originally from Louisiana, Aja was raised in Florida, where she spent as much time as possible on the beach. “I’m definitely a little surfer girl,” she says. “I love the waves on the East Coast, and I think the sunlight in Florida is the most beautiful.” When she’s not in front of the camera – or hanging from the ceiling, for that matter – Aja loves to go out with her girlfriends. On a typical night, she goes all out – hair and makeup, one mini dress and a pair of heels later, she’s tearing it up on the dance floor. “I’d rather be single than in a relationship,” says Aja. “Being carefree and having fun is so important to me. I do enjoy being with somebody, but when you’re single, there are no strings.” Pretty, talented and independent, not to mention very flexible – that’s the gorgeous Aja Marie.
