Arlenis Sosa Peña (born May 7, 1989) is a Dominican model.


She was born in Copey, a district of Pepillo Salcedo in Monte Cristi Province, Dominican Republic. She received her primary and secondary education at the Evangelical College Simon Bolivar in the city of Dajabón.

Career beginningsEdit

When she was 16, she intended to further her education in communication studies in Santo Domingo, but while walking in Copey with her family, designer Luis Menieur, her mother's agent, spotted her. He complimented Sosa and told her she could be a model in New York.

For two and half years, she had to cope with the color prejudice of some Dominican designers, while she worked as a model in her homeland. Although she could not speak English when she moved to New York, she walked into Marilyn Models in March 2008 and was signed on the spot. She dove head-first into the fashion industry, with Anna Wintour sending her to the Met Ball during her first week in New York. Two weeks after she signed, she booked her first editorials for major magazines Vogue and Vogue Italia.

Personal lifeEdit

She married American-Irish basketball player Donnie McGrath in 2015.
