From homeless to hero — and maybe the cover of Maxim magazine?

The Navy veteran spent her high school years homeless on the streets of LA. Now, she’s vying for a spot on the cover of Maxim magazine.

Janae Sergio spent her high school years on the streets of Los Angeles, in and out of homeless shelters and programs for at-risk youth.

So, when the 36-year-old Navy veteran heard about a competition that donates money toward building homes for wounded warriors, she knew she wanted to take part.

“I know what it’s like to not have a home, so that’s really important to me,” she told Military Times.

Sergio, now an assistant business and financial manager for the U.S. Pacific Fleet, is vying for a spot on the cover of the international men’s magazine Maxim, a competition that comes with a $25,000 prize for the lucky winner — and the kind of platform that would give Sergio a voice to inspire young people living in similar circumstances.
