We have to think that we have in us all the dreams of the world.
May these dreams, if we fight, can become reality, because this world is full of endless possibilities.
And although these possibilities may surprise you, if you do not give up, they can lead you to what you so desire.
We have to believe that we can be whatever we want, so let's fight for it, of course with training, workshop, and training, but we can do it!
Believe in yourself.
- Can you tell us about your roots, about growing up.
I was born in Algarve a well known beach location in Portugal, but in young age i moved to a city in the center of the country, much smaller but it was enough for me to grow up happy and surronded by family and friends.
- What was your childhood / teenage dream ? What did you wanna to become ?
When i was younger i wanted to be a vet, however the child dream today as change and today i would like to work in social assistance instituitions that’s why im studying sociology.
I also said that i would be a model but only in part-time, that was a child dream, also it always fascinated, but unfortunately i was “moked” by others because of that dream, i was critized fot being too slim, ugly and that i was dreamming too high. Nowdays, i have proud in myself for never quito n my dream and i have a deep love for my work and for the results i obtained.
- Any idols during the teenage period ?
Yes, some. None that i have brought to this day. Currently i just follow what comes up keep me informed, i inspire myself in everthing i see that is to my liking.
- When did you start with modeling? Can you recall your first photo session?
Strangely enough, they approached me on the street, about 9 years ago, and I was enthusiastic to get a training with actors and professional models and it was. I took a training in photography, theater, passerelle and television and from there work began to emerge. I started as a model only as a passerelle when I was 15 and at 18 I started photography. It's like a vice! It makes me very happy and I feel inexplicably well when I do. It's a great therapy for my psychological, and of course, a great exercise in self-esteem! All girls have to have self-esteem, not overkill, but we have to value ourselves!
My first photography session was when I made a photographic book with several different looks and still inside the first lineup, that's where my love for photography and fashion really was born.
- Can you tell us about your favorite place for a photo session /so far/?
My favorite place for photos is in nature, and here I am very lucky because I live in the middle of two beautiful mountains and I am presented every day with the wonderful view that has been with me since childhood. The colors of the seasons here are very present and I feel at home when I photograph in nature. Of course, I'd love to have a photo shoot on an exotic beach, or in the middle of a big, bustling city like Tokyo or New York, maybe one day
- Your most interesting photo session?
I have photographed in the most varied places, but there was a session that really struck me, it was a huge challenge for me. They invited me to be a catalog model for a garment production factory and the meeting place was in the middle of a mall. Of course, the challenge here was to be able to concentrate on a white background and to be able to feel comfortable even with the hundreds of people who stopped to see. The challenge has been successful and now I already feel comfortable to make my photos wherever I go. We should never be afraid to show us! We should not be afraid to fail, no one is perfect and we must always risk and challenge ourselves.
- Who is in charge for yours Make up and hairstyle ?
Usually the small sessions are myself that I prepare at home, I take some ideas from the internet and I wasted some time in the make up adventure. At large sessions or photographic events, the organization chooses a professional make-up artist and we do not have to worry about anything. .
- What would be your advice to young girls who would like to start modeling career ?
We have to think that we have in us all the dreams of the world. May these dreams, if we fight, can become reality, because this world is full of endless possibilities. And although these possibilities may surprise you, if you do not give up, they can lead you to what you so desire. We have to believe that we can be whatever we want, so let's fight for it, of course with training, workshop and training, but we can do it! Believe in yourself.
- What kind of art in general do you like ?
I lose myself in time and in the world when I am facing photography, landscape, sculpture, exhibitions, music. Let's say I'm in love with any kind of art!
- Any hobbies ?
I am a university student and I believe I am at the best time of my life. I love going out at night and being with friends, I like to go to the gym to keep fit, to the spa to relax, but above all to go for a spin on 4.
- plans for the rest of 2018 ?
In this 2018, I wish to finish my studies, my degree in sociology and start the Master. Of course, I want to continue with my photographic sessions and continue to train myself in the field of photography and passerelle, to rise and become more and more experienced and recognized by my work.
