Veronica Kay convinced her mother at age 15 to allow her to model for income. The gamble payed off. But, modeling isn't Kay's main interest. After ballet, soccer, volleyball and field hockey, she found her passion in surfing.
Even though she spent the past winter surfing on the North Shore of Oahu, for the last three years Kay has been a member of the Quicksilver snowboarding team. She is also the international face of Roxy, the popular clothing manufacturer, and is able to support her mother, who has gone back to school to become a special education teacher.
