Meet Mayra Veronica, a Cuban model and celebrity. See her biography, photos and video here.
Mayra Veronica recently returned from Iraq with Wilmer Valderrama where they went to show their support for the troops.
As a biography, Mayra Veronica was born in Havana, Cuba on August 20, 1980, so her age is 27. She is a model and celebrity who, though born in Cuba, gained her fame in the United States. Mayra’s father, Arturo Aruca, was in a top rock band in Cuba, “Los Dada”. However, she struggled throughout her childhood as her family bounced from shelter to apartment after the family moved to the United States. When she couldn’t afford to take the ballet lessons she loved, the teacher told her she could come for free if she found 7 friends to attend the class also – she did. Veronica later graduated from Florida International University with a degree in Psychology.
Mayra got her start on Univision’s Don Francisco Presenta as a model. Her curves caught the eye of FHM, who included her in their 2004 calendar. Since then, Mayra has appeared on countless magazines and in commercials in the US, including a Nike Campaign with Lebron James, and ads for Loreal, Ford, Burger King, and Coca Cola. She was named to FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World List three years in a row.
