How would you describe yourself in three words?
Crazy and I don’t know. It’s hard. Pisces. Does that work?
How old were you when you got into modelling?
I started when I was 12 and now I’m 18. I started doing shows in Brazil, in Brasilia they don’t care about the age, but I couldn’t go to Sao Paulo for example because for fashion week you need to be 16 to start.
How did you get into modelling?
A lot of people would speak to my mum and say "shes so tall and thin" so my mum decided to look for an agency. We found one called Unique Models in Brazil by checking the website and I sent them my pictures and they called me.
Did you always want to be a model?
No, at first I didn’t. I don’t know. I think at first because I was so young I didn’t even really think about it. I didn’t realise how it would be with the travelling around and everything. I just started for a hobby really.
What do you love about the industry?
Being a model changed my life for sure. If I wasn’t a model I maybe couldn’t have travelled to as many places as I have. I love learning about different cultures and languages as well.
Do you think your idea of modelling has changed over time?
Sure. When I started I thought it would be easy but now I see it’s a hard job. Because I’m Brazilian and spend a lot of time in Europe I’m only going home once a year maybe as its so expensive so this is quite hard as well.
What have you been doing whilst you’ve been in London?
I’ve done some shoots for magazines and I did a showroom and fit for Alexander McQueen. That was really fun.
When you’re not working how do you relax?
Reading a book or listening to some music. Maybe some exercise, depends on my mood.
Where are you happiest?
Brazil for sure. Home, because of my family and friends.
Going back to Milan for shows and then we’ll see.
