Meet Sokhon Lounh. After being selected to appear in the 2010 Seminole Hard Rock Calendar, Sokhon has aspirations in being a commercial model. Not only is she a beauty, Sokhon is a full time college student studying Dental.
“Well I’m 23 years old and I’m a full time student at Hillsborough Community College, my major is Dental. I’m working part time as a cocktail waitress/calendar girl at the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa. I love to cook and bake, if I could make lots of money in my kitchen and have my own cooking show on Food Network then forget about me becoming a dental hygienist! I don’t like being bored, so I try to be active as possible. I’m pretty adventurous and I love to try new things at least once in a lifetime.” – Sokhon
