WHO IS YOUR MOTHER AGENCY?
WHERE IS YOUR HOMETOWN?
São Caetano do Sul, São Paulo. Brazil
MV ASKS: WHEN & WHERE DID YOU FIRST GET SCOUTED?
I was scouted when I was 13 years old by the owner of Mega who saw me walking in the mall with my mom. He invited to join the agency then & there! When I turned 14 I did my first trip to NY. Since then I never stopped!
MV ASKS: WHERE IS YOUR HOMETOWN AND WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT BRAZIL?
What means more to me than anything is family, friends. I am also so proud that I am from Brazil, I love the cuisine, it’s my absolute favourite, I would highly recommend people visit and try out our local specialities!
MV ASKS: WHAT IS SOMETHING PEOPLE MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I’m a family girl 😉 Doesn’t matter where I’m I need to talk with my mom every day!
I try to be close even when I’m further away.
I’ve been living in my dream world and I believe I work very hard for everything I achieve, I am also however so grateful for every memory & could not have done this without the support of my family!
MV ASKS: WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE MODELLING EXPERIENCE SO FAR & WHY?
For sure it was in Maldives where I went to shoot for Triangle.
It was a dream come true fist of all because I really wanted to shoot for them as a brand and second I was crazy to go to the Maldives!
That trip was insane! I stayed in the Four Seasons hotel, which is certainly the most beautiful place I ever been.
DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER PASSIONS OR HOBBIES OUTSIDE OF MODELLING?
I love sports, I did 8 years of volleyball and basketball but with the modelling career, unfortunately, I couldn’t keep doing it but I try to do sports as much as I can, with such a hectic schedule.
When I moved to New York I tried Capoeira which I also loved! 😉 Also in my free time I like to be close to nature which helps to recharge my energy for the next adventure.
Also since I started to meditate my life has changed completely. I highly recommend!

MV ASKS: HOW IMPORTANT IS LIVING A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE TO YOU & WHAT ARE YOUR TOP DIET TIPS?
I think it’s very important to have a healthy lifestyle especially when you think about the future. We are what we eat. I’ve tried many crazy diets and for me, the one which really worked is eating everything in small portions, I don’t like to limit myself as I really like to eat so I workout every day, but I’m always watching what I’m eating so I can have the balance.
Another thing is drinking water, it’s one of the most important things I drink every day 2 Lettres at least.
MV ASKS: CAN YOU BRIEFLY DESCRIBE YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE?
So for cleanse, I use Cerave soap for normal to oily skin- cleans all the makeup and balances the Skin PH.
As a serum, I LOVE Skinceuticals blemish + age defence has a salicylic acid which helps to prevent the formation of acne & reduce hyperpigmentation.
I don’t leave without thermal water. Always when I feel my skin needs it I use it, especially during flights.
As a moisturizer I’ve been using Dior Hydra Life – gives my skin a deep hydration without making it oily.
MV ASKS: HOW DO YOU PREPARE YOURSELF BEFORE A SHOOT?
I prepare myself every day actually but of course, if I have something big coming up I push myself even harder.
I do a real diet… cutting sweets and carbs so I can get that thinner look. And I try to sleep early the night before and as always drink lots of water.
MV ASKS: WHAT IS ONE MISCONCEPTION ABOUT THE INDUSTRY YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP CHANGE?
Bringing more information about the industry for newcomers and young girls.
MV ASKS: AS AN INFLUENCER, WY DO YOU THINK INSTAGRAM IS A POWERFUL TOOL FOR FASHION MODELS?
Because you can show your personality, show your passions and your day by day.
Now I feel it matters more how many followers you have than which jobs had you done.
MV ASKS: WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO JOIN MODEL VILLAGE & WHY WOULD YOU ADVISE OTHER MODELS JOIN OUR COMMUNITY?
Because Model Village creates moments and events to produce genuine and beautiful content, a unique concept which isn’t otherwise available for fashion models. It’s always nice to work with people whom you can really trust. That’s the most important thing. & something I find is really apparent with the MV Team.
