Could Seventeen be on the verge of having its first HIV-positive cover girl? Well, if Paige Rawl receives enough votes for the magazine’s Pretty Amazing Cover Girl contest, then the answer will be, “YES!” Paige is one of the finalists for the slot and a win would also net her a $10,000 college scholarship.
Paige is a fearless advocate who uses her voice to help educate her peers about HIV and to fight stigma. She is bold, confident, and definitely a gal after Red Pump’s heart. We don’t know who is in the lead right now, but we’re confident that we can help boost Paige to a W. You can vote on Seventeen.com everyday until August 1st, so let’s help her finish strong!
