We Asked:

How and when did you become a model?
“My mom has a beauty salon in Rio and I used to spend a lot of time helping her there. Once, when I was 14 a client told my mom I had the perfect features to be a model. So we started to look for agencies and we sent some pictures to 40 Graus Models. They accepted me, but in Rio we don’t have many fashion jobs. More commercial ones. So I came to São Paulo in the beginning of 2016 and then my career really started.”

What are your interests/favorite things?
“I love watching movies, mostly the classic ones. I can watch a movie 4.5 times or more if is really good. I’m crazy about Star Wars and my favorite movie is American Psycho. I also play some games online like League of Legends, Diablo and World of Warcraft.”

What is an issue or cause you are passionate about?
“I’m a feminist and fight for the cause on everything that I can. I also can’t see an injustice being done without doing something to stop it.”
