When did you start your career as a model?
I got discovered when i was still in high school and did some part time jobs in Chile and i decided to come back home and finish high school, so when i graded, i decided to take it full time at age of seventeen.
Why did you want to be a model?
i really never thought of being a model, it just happen, i started to love it and thank God here I am 🙂
How is it different to work in NY compared to Brazil?
well i can’t tell the difference since I’ve never work in Brazil with my mother agency. I have only work with my international agencies in Chile, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Portugal,Milan, London, Paris, Germany, New York and Japan.
How do you spend your time when not working?
I go running on the river side, love the breeze, I hang out with my friends and drink chimarrao ( typical drink from the south of Brazil, RS) and i try to improve my English.
My favourite shoot was that one time i worked in Sao Paulo, at the beach ( not in the open sea and on a boat, exactly where i could “swim”) I think that it was my best shoot because it was my country, and i was able to speak english and best of all my language – portuguese and tell the crew about my Brazilian culture. 😀
My worst shoot was in Hong Kong, one of my first shoots, i didn’t knew enough english, it was on a bout ( in the open sea), I don’t know how to swim and i had to pose well the bout was moving, my face was so scared LOL
Harper’s Bazaar. ID magazine, Elle magazine, Vogue, teen vogue.

What is your favourite band right now?
Guns N’ roses and Nirvana
What is your “guilty pleasure”-music?
Rock&roll, hip hop, bachata and Vaneirao ( typical dance from south of Brazil) can’t live with out this!
When is the best time to dance?
To me always, I am always dancing because music takes me places *actually I am dancing right now.
What is your favourite city?
I love NYC, it was always my dream to come here and i feel bless to live here now and i love my home town, Casca -Rio grande do Sul, BR all my family is still there, so you know home is home!
Book/movie/event that changed your life?
The Bible, I am very religious and I’ve learnt a lot, every time i read a verse there is a better message for me, a new message I discover, a new way to look at everything and anything and through the Blble I’ve met people that today i don’t only call friends but family!
Where are you in 5 years
To be honest i have no idea, i mean i don’t know we humans make so many planes for the future that at the end we always end up doing somethings we never thought of. So my future plan is get a degree and teaching and I see myself as a teacher because i love teaching new things but i cant say that is how i see myself in five years, as i said, the future is indescribable and it comes soon enough and hopefully still living in New York and modelling because this is what i really love to do.
