I'm passionate about helping others. I realize this makes me happy and makes me feel useful and alive.
I started modeling when I was 16 years old when I was discovered in a shopping mall. A booker of a famous agency in Brazil saw me and told me to come in for a casting. I decided to take a chance and go for it. In my international modeling career I’ve had the opportunity to shoot with Tyra Banks for America’s Next Top Model, as well as working big campaigns for brands such as Renuar, Fox, Galit Levi. In Milan, I worked with Roberto Cavalli and did a lot of Vogue editorials and I’ve been in editorials for Elle and a lot of other local magazines.
I quit modeling for 3 years when I decided to move back to Brazil to study medicine. Then, I met my husband and I decided to move to LA with him, and I chose to get back into the modeling industry but to do things differently than before. Now, I only want to work with conscious brands and projects where I have an impact. Besides modeling, I'm building a web platform named Conscious Origins where we help people become more conscious about their consumption practices. I'm also working a new fair trade bikini line.
I want to see the world change and I felt that I needed to take the lead, and to be the change that I want to see in the world. I am looking forward to using my image to help promote veganism and a more conscious lifestyle. I want to do my part in creating a better future for this world.
