MANILA – Kelsey Merritt has finally joined the Viva Artists Agency (VAA) family.

VAA made a similar announcement on its own page as it listed down Merritts achievements at a young age of 23.

Born in Pampanga, Merritt began her career in the Philippines as a commercial model before moving to America to try to make a name for herself. 

True enough, she became a pride of the Philippines as she became the first Filipina to join the coveted Victoria’s Secret fashion show in 2018. 

A year later, she announced her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit stint.

“Appearing in both Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated is a rare feat for many models from all over the world, and Kelsey has already achieved that in just 2 years after debuting in the international modelling stage,” VAA said.

Before her modelling career, Merritt finished AB Communications at the Ateneo de Manila University.
