She was urged by friends to pursue modeling in her early 20s, though it was only a hobby, as Papp preferred business exploits to photo sessions. She was given her green card when she arrived in the United States on the basis of being considered a “National Treasure,” a status the US government extends to a select few considered an asset to the country. Her company, Atlantic United, is based in Los Angeles and New York and works with select magazines to promote celebrities and high-profile personalities. A self-proclaimed “adrenaline junky,” Papp enjoys multiple death-defying sports, such as ice climbing, rock climbing, and expeditions to remote areas, such as an upcoming two-week trek to the Arctic. Calling herself a true Runaway Bride in the past, Papp has been engaged three times, but never married as of yet.
