Hello everyone + Happy Monday! I am so excited to be continuing this inspiring series called Monday Muse and to be featuring the gorgeous Danika Tramburg this week!

The exquisite Danika was my very first model for my designs back in 2014 and needless to say, I've had the distinct honor of having her as a model ever since. We went to high school together and I always thought Danika was the perfect model. Now years later she is one of Madalyn Joy Designs most established models. 

Danika brings the fire to whatever shoot or show she is a part of. She literally just walks onto set and kills it every single time. I love working with Danika because you know she is going to get the shot and it will be even more fierce and fiery than you ever imagined. Of course I have to take a hot second to talk about my undying love and appreciation for Danika's perfect butt. I just don't understand how someone's butt can be so perfectly round and look exactly like the peach emoji. It's a true talent! haha

Danika, I know your future may seem uncertain right now since you just graduated from college, but I know you will find success in whatever path you choose to pursue. You are such a beautiful and talented lady and the world is truly your oyster! Keep dreaming and working hard and you will achieve whatever you set your mind to! xoxo

Tell us a little bit abut yourself!

As Miss WI Unites States 2017 I found my passions for volunteering. I have a guitar and keep telling myself I will teach myself but haven't. I love music... all day, every day, ay kind, but I'm so not musically gifted. Although I may not sing, I can dance, well I think I can dance. My favorite Bible verse is John 16:33. I always wanted to be taller than my sister, but unfortunately I stopped growing at 5'10". I am very philosophical when it comes to life questions and I never stop thinking. I want to be the next Erin Andrews, but my version. My fam bam is everything to me and one of the hardest things I had to do was put down my favorite chocolate lab. Also, seeing my dad have a heart attack was one of the hardest things to watch. And if I don't stop now, I will get really deep! 

How did you get into modeling?

I started fashion shows when I was about 10 for a local bridal shop (Amelishan Bridal). 

What is your favorite part about modeling?

Definitely meeting new people!

What is your least favorite thing about modeling?

It can be a cold industry so it gives me that much more of a reason to stay strong in my faith and grounded in my morals, values, and beliefs.

What has been your favorite modeling experience (i.e. show, shoot, event)?

I was in a music video when I was 16...that was interesting

What was your most beautiful and confident moment? 

It was appearing in my swimsuit on the Miss WI USA stage or at the national pageant in Florida for Miss United States. It was empowering just being comfortable in my own skin and owning every part of myself weather it was great or an imperfection

Who is your muse/inspiration?

Besides my mom because she has shaped who I am today and is an incredible role model and wisdom giver, I would say I don’t truly have one. I just believe in being your best self and what I strive to do most which is the hardest is following God's plan for my life whatever that may be I haven’t figured it out yet.

Fun fact?

I can do some cool things with my tongue. Like make clovers and flip it and stuff. I also want twin baby girls really badly one day. 

Looking forward to most in 2018?

The unknown

What is your number one modeling goal? 

All time dream is to be a Victoria’s Secret angel, but Madalyn’s angel is pretty great too.

Coffee Order: Vanilla Latte (unless they have lavender!)

Cocktail Order: Korbel brandy old fashioned sweet with olives

Favorite Movie: South Paw or Wonder

Favorite song/artist/band: Depends on my mood! I love it all. Bob Seger is always a go to artist for me. My favorite song at the moment is Brandy (you’re a fine girl) by Looking Glass, but it’ll probably change tomorrow!

Favorite Hobby: Although it may sound a bit cliche, it’s just being with my family especially my three nephews - so you could say laughing is my hobby.
