That’s Shannon Ihrke. She joined the military when she was 19 and served four years of active duty before realizing that modeling is much easier than military.

When you’re that attractive, you’re bound to get harassed online. Ihrke says she ignores and laughs off “marriage proposals” and “requests for ‘private photos.'”

*sadly puts ring away*

Here’s what Ihrke said about why she models.

“I model because it’s something I love to do, it’s not to get money or marriage proposals from men.

“I simply enjoy exploring my modelling range and working with some incredibly talented artists and trying to help others along the way.

“I want to show girls that they can do and be whoever they want to be if they work at it hard enough.

“I’m the most happy when I get messages from people saying that I’ve inspired them in some way.”

“I owe the Marine Corps my life, hands down. It gave me a reason to wake up, push myself, set goals, and to push myself even harder when things got tough. Had I not had other dreams I still wanted to accomplish in my life I would have re-enlisted without hesitation… and although I am no longer on active duty, I will always bleed green.”
