Victoria Arroyo, 178 cm / 5’10”, Venezuelan, born May 2nd.
— An issue or cause you are passionate about?
I’m really into the animal protection. I always take care of all the animals that I see. It’s like a thing that I can’t control because whenever I see an animal immediately I want to feed them, give them love and play with them. My mom says that I love animals more than people. One of my goals is to be part of some foundation that takes care of homeless animals.
— What are three interesting facts about you?
1- I studied architecture in college. It’s a really demanding career, you are always thinking about your 3D models, planes and drawings, but it’s a beautiful career because you can learn so many things at the same time, all the stuff is connected (history, design, psychology, geography, economy, mathematics)
2- I practiced volleyball at university level. That was so cool and inspiring to me because it opened new doors to see the world in a different way and this brought me more responsibility, caring for myself and kept me focused on my goals and achievements.
3- I love cooking. This is a hobby that I have had most of my life. I really like to try new recipes, doing some different plates and of course, I like vegan or vegetarian recipes even though I’m not vegan/vegetarian (maybe in the future).
— What is something you wish you knew more about?
Definitely languages, it’s something very important. Learning a new language is like meeting a new culture for me. My mother language is Spanish but I know English and a bit of Italian due to when I stayed there for almost two months. I really want to learn French. I think that the more languages you know, the easier it is for you to stay in different countries.

— One thing people may be surprised to find out about you?
Maybe my way of being: playful and easygoing. Apparently, I come across as a little bit standoffish.
— The most interesting thing about your family? Do you have siblings?
I have a brother named João Danu, who is also a model with Karacter Agency. I truly believe that when he grows up he will be a supermodel.
— Who is your favorite entertainer?
PRZNT, the singer. I see myself in his songs and lyrics and admire his humbleness and way of living.
