Adriana Gaudio, a 2009 graduate of Freedom High School in Orlando, now is studying nursing at Valencia Community College. Although she plans to become a pediatric nurse, she also dreams of a career in modeling. "I've been modeling since I was 11," says Adriana, 19, who recently appeared in Orlando Home & Leisure magazine, and also has done runway work at the John Casablancas agency. "Now that I'm out of high school and I have more time, I'll be modeling more," she says. "Because I'm only five-foot-seven, I know it will be a challenge. But I'm still going to pursue it. I hope I can find an agency that will really promote me." A brown-eyed brunette, Adriana is currently with the MTM agency in Orlando. In her spare time, she enjoys "just relaxing," she says. "I like hanging out with my friends, hanging out by the pool." She also plays some tennis and enjoys reading romantic novels.
