March 29, 2012- Washington, DC-DC Life magazine, a nationally recognized magazine has announced today that Arika Burton, Mrs. DC America 2012 has been selected as the cover model for their April issue.

“Our magazine supports the efforts of the Mrs. DC America organization in its regards to recognizing women in the community who are making a difference. We choose Mrs. Arika Burton, the new Mrs. DC America 2012, as our cover because she exemplifies leadership, selfless service and of course beauty,” states Eugene Smith, Publisher of DC Life Magazine.

Arika also has a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Maryland in both Finance and International Business.
