When did you start modelling?

I started at the age of 13.

Where are you from and how long have you lived in Munich?

I was born in Belém. It’s a City in Brazil in the Amazonas area. I lived there for about 2 years. But I’ve lived in Munich for almost 18 years now, so I would say that I am a “Münchner Madl” which means a real Munich girl.

What is taking up your time at the moment?

At the moment I am really busy with a Competition Project for my school. It tests all my nerves and my patience. But it isn’t as bad as it sounds. Somehow I love being stressed and I think it would be a boring life without any challenges.

Did you have any funny habits when you were a child?

I had the strange habit that whenever the balcony door was open, I’d throw everything outside. Haha. Like shoes, toys, food. Everything. Once my mother told me she was scared that one day I would throw my little brother outside! I also loved to lock myself up in the closet and come out dressed in my mother’s clothes. I think that was a hard test for her patience.

Favourite thing to do in the Winter?

I love to go outside for a long walk, and afterwards get inside with a big cup of tea with milk and honey and watch movies. I know that sounds kind of boring but sometimes it’s the simple things that make me happy and satisfied.

Mornings or nights?

Both. Sure, sometimes it’s hard to get up early, but it is the only way to stay in reality and do something productive. I also love the night because people change when it gets dark outside. There is more to hide and more to find out.

Best and worst thing about your apartment?

Our armchair in the kitchen. How I love this little spot of “end of work” feeling!
The worst thing about our apartment is that it’s on the 4th floor. One drink too many and it takes ages until you get to bed!

Questions from Elisa

How would your friends describe you?

Honest, faithful, self-deprecating and open for every kind of nonsense. (Well, at least I hope this would be the answer haha)

What is your favourite place in Munich?

My mother’s place. Thats where I can always find all my brothers and sisters, also my parents and my stepfather. There is nothing that’s more important to me than this.

What would you do If you had a million Euros?

I would buy each of my parents a house where they would want to live when all the kids have left home. Afterwards I would travel a lot, and make little dreams come true, and take along all of my friends who always stayed at my side and never left.

What do you want to be when you grow up/finish studying?

Well, I am studying to become a sculptor. I hope that one day I can feed my kids with the art I’ll make. And one of my biggest wishes, is to live in Sweden one day.

What is the best thing about your friends?

They are real.
