Candee Verdadero

Age: 22 Hometown: Honolulu About Me: Working 9 to 5 is no way to make a living for Candee, a former bartender at Pearl in Ala Moana Center. Hawaii born and raised, she’s attended Kapiolani and Honolulu community colleges and graced the pages of glossies like SMART, Hot Rodz,FreeSurf and Heavywater.

New horizons await this Kamehameha Schools grad as she takes off on a new career earning her wings as a flight attendant, one of her childhood dreams.

Candee’s Favorite Quote/Advice:

“You have one life to live and you should live it to the fullest! Be happy, be healthy, be beautiful for who you are and you will always live life with a big smile upon your face!”


First gig
A photo shoot for a Hawaii teen magazine for DKNY Junior. I was 17 and I made the cover along with an eight- to 10-page layout.

Dream gig
To appear in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel.

Childhood ambition
To be a lawyer, flight attendant, anesthesiologist, actress, designer ... I wanted it all!

Guilty pleasure
Two words. Ice cream!

If I ruled the world, I would…
Diminish all forms of money. That way everyone would be equal and we would all respect one another for who we are and not by how much money one has.

Who I’m seeing
Ohh…someone I’ve been with for over a year, so it’s more like a serious relationship.

What’s up for me in 2007
First things first, getting through this initial flight attendant training. I pray that 2007 will be in my favor, but more importantly I just want health and happiness. For the rest ... it’s in God’s hands.
