FHM is delighted to have you… How do you feel right now?  I’m very excited. I have always been a big fan of FHM.

Tell us a bit about you and your background: I grew up in a small town outside of Memphis, Tennessee. Memphis has been my home for the last 20 years, where I’m actively involved in my community. I started modeling in college and was fortunate to travel the world, working with top brands, photographers, and other models. Although I have a degree in Political Science and initially planned to attend law school like my father, my travels led me in a different direction. I became an event coordinator for an international company, planning large-scale celebrity events, and eventually opened my own special events marketing company, the Sullivan Agency. I love what I do, managing every aspect of special events from fundraising to social media advertising and providing promotional models to elevate events and brands. They say you never work a day in your life if you do what you love.

Are you romantic?  Deep down I’m a hopeless romantic, but not many people get to see that side. I’m extremely selective.

To love or be loved?  I think both loving and being loved are equally important. To love someone without feeling loved in return is the worst feeling in the world. 

To please or be pleased?  In a healthy relationship, it’s important to have a balance between pleasing your partner and being pleased with yourself. Both partners should feel valued, respected, and fulfilled. 

Favorite body part on you? On him? On Myself, my favorite body part is my eyes. I lost eyesight in my right eye several years ago, and before then, I took for granted how beautiful my green eyes were and how amazing it is to be able to see. On a man, I love both pretty eyes and a nice smile. A nice smile is the first thing I notice, and a deal breaker for me, but how well a man makes eye contact with you shows confidence and offers insight into what a person is thinking. 

What attracts you the most in a man?  Obviously, physical attraction is important, but I also love a man with a good sense of humor. You have to be able to make me laugh.

Can you tell us 1 secret about you? (we won’t tell anyone *wink)  I’m proud to say that I’ve faced and overcome numerous challenges in my life, and through it all, I’ve developed a resilient spirit and a determination to never give up. I believe that my positive outlook and perseverance can inspire others who have faced similar struggles, and I strive to be a source of encouragement and hope for those around me.

Which animal best describes you and why?  I’m tiny but mighty, so I’d say a lioness. A lioness symbolizes strength, protection, feminine power, and community leadership. They are also fiercely loyal with nurturing instincts much like myself. 

Describe yourself using 3 adjectives:  Resilient, Charismatic, and Compassionate.

What are some of your goals in life you wish to accomplish? I’ve worked hard to get to where I am today, and I’m very happy with what I’ve accomplished. I know that if I work hard enough, I will accomplish any goal that I set for myself in the future. My past experiences have shown me that dedication and effort pave the way to success, and I’m excited about the journey ahead. Instagram @ElizabethLeighSullivan.
