Our December 2011 cover model is Desire’ from Kansas City, Missouri, who was the winner of our Cover Model Search at the Brass Rail in Kansas City, Missouri. Many of you may remember Desire', who made her cover model debut on our November 2008 cover


Desire’ is student, model, and a cocktail waitress at Tokyo Japanese Restaurant. Her current ambition is to finish college, get a Master’s degree in child psychology, and to become one of the best child therapists. Hobbies include yoga, jogging, cooking, and attending charity events. Turn-ons include a charming personality, and someone who is able to carry an intelligent conversation, spontaneous, mature, and wise, along with intense physical beauty. Turnoffs include “People who are cocky, immature, liars, and those who like to criticize me and others in order to make themselves feel better. I also don’t care for people who are artificial or have a fake personality, which is easy to see right through them. I also don’t like stingy, cheap people...especially Korean people. I’ve never met one that isn’t. Desire’ admits that she’s a sucker for Prince Charming, romantic dinners, cute babies, and guys with a sensitive side, but also tough and a protector.
When asked what the smartest thing is she has ever done, Desire’ said “Deciding to go to college and further my education as far as possible in order to have the tools to reach all my goals and fulfill my dreams and ambitions. Knowledge is power and I am one power hungry woman that wants to be at the top. The most stupid thing I’ve ever done was to let my so-called fake friends drag me down and fabricate stories about me because they were insecure and stab me in the back.
Desire’ describes her personality as “Outgoing, caring, empathetic, and mature for my age. I have an extensive vocabulary, and am always correcting people, but I do admit I have a crazy side when someone crosses the line, and then that’s when they realize they messed with the wrong women.”
Desire’ is told that her best attribute is “Being a trustworthy friend. I keep my friend’s secrets; I don’t stab anybody in the back, and I give great advice for friends in need. I would also do anything for my mother, even though she gets on my nerves sometimes…as mothers do.”

Just for fun, we asked Desire’ to share some of her favorite things with our readers:

Favorite color: Pink & lavender.

Favorite food: Vietnamese food, gyros, sushi, and burgers with lots of bacon.

Favorite drink (non-alcoholic): Starbucks Frappucinos.

Favorite drink (alcoholic): Midori Sour, Patron, 1800, Baileys and Sex on the Beach.

Favorite restaurants: Vietnam Café, Fogo de Ciao, & the Capital Grill.

Favorite actor: Mathew McConahay.

Favorite actress: Angelina Jolie.

Favorite TV show: Oprah Winfrey.

Favorite movie: Dazed and Confused.

Favorite artists: Lady Gaga & Nicki Minaj.

Favorite song: Any Nicki Minaj songs. I would love to meet her. I’m a super fan!

Do you have pets: I have my boyfriend’s daughter’s dog. We all live together).

Do you ride? Yes.
Do you own your own bike? No, but my boyfriend does, and he lets me use it as though its mine. It’s an American Ironhorse, which is electric blue with flames.
How long have you been riding? I first learned to ride a moped, and then a motorcycle at the age of 13 in my country of Vietnam.
What was your first bike? I was a moped.
What is your dream bike? A BMW, because I love Beemers, and they cost almost as much as a car.
What is your most memorable riding experience? My most memorable riding experience occurred in Vietnam when at age 13, when riding with my mother and grandma through the mountains. It was beautiful scenery, I saw lots a green land and felt close to the sky because we were riding all the way up the mountains. I will never forget that moment.
Which motorcycle rallies & events have you attended, and which is your favorite? Bikers for Babies® because I love doing charity work that helps the community.
Tell us about your tattoos? I have a tattoo that says Play The Game in Old English located on my lower back. I got it when I was 16 years old. I was young, but til this day, I don’t regret it, and am still very proud of it because of the meaning and reason behind it. I have my own philosophy that I believe and follow. I believe that living life is like playing a game, and we must follow the rules and play in order to survive. I like to compare life to a game of Chess; we should watch every move we make. We must carefully plan it and know what the consequences will be afterwards. The moves we make take us in the direction we choose to head in our life to reach our goal. So a short explanation would be Play the Game of life like a game of Chess, watch every move you make, and protect the Queen, which is me. .
Who is your favorite tattoo artist? Kat Von D, because although I never had a tattoo done by her, I saw her work in the LA and Miami Ink show and the art done by Kat on other people is immaculate. The tattoos look amazingly distinct, and I think she is very artistic and the best at what she does.
Do you prefer riding in a group or by yourself? Both. Riding by yourself is a perfect way to get alone time for yourself and feeling the peace and tranquility of passing through sceneries, but I also think having a partner or a group would definitely be lots of fun because you’re with your friends and family, or the one you love. You can’t beat that!
Who are some of your closest riding buddies? All my family members on my dad’s side know how to ride, so they are all my closest riding buddies.

Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers? When I get married and have children, I would love to get my family together on a camping trip and teach all of them to ride motorcycles so we can ride in a group together as a family. I can imagine that being a perfect activity that would create memorable moments together as a family.
Thanks for the interview Desire’.
