An Atlanta resident is among 20 finalists vying for PETA's "Sexiest Vegan Next Door" contest.

Arnisha Keaton, 25, beat out hundreds of contestants from across the U.S. to make the final round. PETA will select a man and a woman and each will receive a free vacation for two to Hawaii.

Keaton is an Army reserve chemist and railroader who stopped eating meat while she was in preschool. She became a vegan two years ago.

"Everywhere she travels, Arnisha Keaton demonstrates how nutrient-packed vegan meals provide enough energy for even the most active lifestyles," said PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman in a press release. "Each one of the finalists in PETA's contest is a testament to how sexy vegans are—inside and out."

Voting continues until June 21 and the winner will be announced on June 28.
