Stunning Czech model Petra, 31, has been featured in mags such as Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Shape, Cosmopolitan, Vanity Fair and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. But many of us recall her as a survivor of the devastating Thailand tsunami in 2004 when she suffered a broken pelvis and severe internal injuries while on vacation. Her fiance was killed during the tsunami. After her recovery, Petra created the "Happy Hearts Fund," a charitable organization and campaign dedicated to improving children’s lives through education and sustainable programs in natural disaster areas. Happy Hearts Fund has rebuilt 47 schools and kindergartens, with eight more on their way. She also wrote a book about her ordeal titled Love Always, Petra.
