Last year, she tweeted that she wished she could model for VS (Victoria’s Secret) “more than anything”.  A year later, she quoted her old tweet and adds that she will be shooting with the American fashion brand. We’re absolutely happy for her!

Merritt could not contain her excitement about her wonderful achievement, that she also shared through tweets how humbled she is to be given the opportunity.

Since she graduated from Ateneo De Manila University last year, Merritt has moved to the United States to be a full-time model, as she is signed under distinguished modeling agencies such as Supreme Management & Wilhemina Models, as revealed on her Instagram account.

According to, she has been modeling since she was 15 years old. She has also done fashion editorials and TV commercials, other than runway modeling.

Screenshots of Merritt’s Instagram stories show some behind-the-scenes with her shoot with Victoria’s Secret.
