Thanks to a ton of votes, Stardust Santiago has advanced to the next round of a Wounded Warrior contest for Maxim Magazine.

With one one win, Santiago would advance to the finals of the contest.

The Egg Harbor Township resident is a 1998 graduate of Middle Township High School. She is a disabled veteran who served in the Air Force as a Military Police Sergeant, and was stationed at the 177th Fighter Wing, New Jersey Air National Guard.  She currently is working towards her doctorate in Physical Therapy at Stockton University.

A win for Stardust in this round would put her into the Top 15, and if she wins the contest, she'd win a Maxim photo shoot and $25,000 prize.
