She said she knew she wanted to be a model from the time she was four years old. Erika would grab her mother's magazines to check out the models; she would also imitate characters she'd seen on TV. Her dream came true years later when a friend dared her to send out photos of herself to a magazine. Erika took up the dare, took photos in her own home and sent them off to FHM. Three months later, in 2006, she landed a spot in the July 2006 issue. After that, she quit her day job and found a manager.
Her measurements are 34C-24-36 and she weighs 112 lbs. Though she is only 5' 3", she said, "I model like I'm 5' 10"." Erika added, "My eyes, my smile and my boobies are my three favorite body features." And yes, she said, they're real. Erika has a hidden tattoo, "right above my thigh and just below my waist.right next to the cookie."
She has appeared in "Rush Hour 3," "Hannah Montana," "American's Most Smartest Model," and "Two and a Half Men." Erika Medina has appeared in music videos with stars such as Justin Timberlake, Pitbull, the Backstreet Boys, Chris Brown and Enrique Iglesias.
Recently, she was part of the SlickforceGirl series, which brought together a group of models and actress to fight for a common good. In her segment, Erika Medina played an Air Force Airman.
Her magazine spreads include FHM and Maxim, among others. She was also hired to promote a variety of brands, including Jack Daniel's, Malibu Rum, Monster Energy Drink and Boost Mobile.
When she isn't modeling, Erika Medina likes to spend time with her family, see movies and go dancing. She also takes acting lessons. She is also into car racing games like Gran Turismo and Diddy Kong racing.
Erika Medina said, "I love traveling and I like seeing exotic things. I like to take in the culture and the different ways of living" (importuner.com). Regarding men, she said, "I don't think a guy should change himself. The girl that he's meant to be with should accept him for who he is."
Erika Medina said, "After people get to know me they tell me that in the beginning they thought that I was a conceited, stuck-up bitch. I think that a person shouldn't be judged only by their first impression. Besides, every girl has the ability to be a bitch."
