Truth be told, we don’t see many Japanese models here at PASMAG. Not because they aren’t beautiful, they most certainly are but they are usually lacking the, er assets and a curvaceous body that our readers crave. But hold the phone, Miss Maya Michelle Rew is a Japanese Caucasian that has all the right measurements with a 34C chest! No problem there and once we got to know her, we liked what we heard. Maya is down to earth, hardworking and dedicated to her family. This hair stylish turned model has been on photo shoots around the globe and is entering her 5th year of doing modeling. Oh and she also go-go dances, like hardcore every weekend and adds that it keeps her killer body, well killer. Read on to see what secret this girl may be hiding, or where she is hiding herself!
