Tell us a bit about yourself? I am a dentist in Brazil, model and student in Los Angeles. I think I am a very positive person, and I like simple things like nature, the beach, spend my time with friends and travel. I am always looking for new things, adventures, challenges, new cultures, evolution. At the same time, I am a super perfectionist, with my mind and body, everything has to be in harmony. I believe that every woman has her potential and charm, we can be and do what we want. I always think about my future with ambition and I value simple things that make me smile. I graduated in dentistry in Brazil and I specialized in dental prosthetics and aesthetics, I have already taken some dental courses in the USA and I am currently studying to validate my diploma in CA. In Brazil I participated in the carnival parade in Rio de Janeiro, this marked my trajectory in Brazil, I was also a muse for Gremio, a football team in the state where I was born: Rio Grande do Sul, I have always reconciled my life as a model and student, later as a doctor and model. Today, my passion is to model and encourage people not to be afraid to follow their dreams and fight for them, I am privileged to be able to do and be what I love.

What was your initial reaction when you were chosen to shoot for FHM? I was very excited and surprised, for me it is an honour to be part of the history of FHM. I hope to exceed people’s expectations and bring enthusiasm these days.

How do you prepare for a shoot? I continue with my routine, but a month before the shoot my food is more restricted and training is more intense. I eat healthy, vegetarian. I work out every day and I do aerobic training 4 times a week, I drink a lot of tea. I do aesthetic treatments for the skin and I love being always tanned. Then I count on my photographer, producer and makeup artist, they are great, I don’t need to prepare much.

Describe your perfect man… Wow… I am a very demanding woman to choose who will be by my side. I like intelligent men, gentlemen and with charm. I have to admire this man and look at him as if the world doesn’t exist around me. Surely he has to be adventurous like me. I appreciate the man who makes women want to grow and evolve, together they add up. I am romantic, Brazilians like romanticism.

What is your ideal date? For the first date, surprise me.

What do you do for fun? Well, I love to travel when I have free time, I am passionate about working out and the fitness world, it makes me feel free and energetic. Now I am learning Yoga, I am loving it. And one thing I will never stop linking and doing is reading and studying, my mind is always looking for contents and news.

Tell us a bit about your most embarrassing moment? I have many, many funny stories, some will be kept secret (hehe), now I can remember when I arrived from a costume party, I missed the floor of my apartment at 2am the door of the neighbours was unlocked, I just went in thinking it was my apartment. When I look around me I realize that those were not my furniture and it was not my home, omg, in seconds I look to the side, there was a couple watching TV, I just say “Sorry”, and run away as if there was no tomorrow. Dying of shame and dressed up as a cat woman lol, it was Halloween. 

What would you say is the most difficult part about being a model? I think it is keeping the mind focused on the goals and not letting futility influence its character. Have an open mind and know that each model has its own characteristic and beauty. They all have their space in the world of models.

What are you most looking forward to doing this year? I would like to see people talking about how stunning the new land has become. 

Lastly, what is your life motto or a quote that means a lot to you? Life is good when you believe in yourself. My beauty essentials include leadership, gratitude and a cheerful sense of humour. I’m always smiling.
