Jarah-Evelyn Makalapua Mariano is an American fashion model of Chinese, Korean, and Hawaiian descent. She was born in Hawai’i and grew up in Mission Viejo, California. At age 15 she started modeling. She moved to NYC after high school, attending Pace University full-time while continuing to work as a model. She is best known for her appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
