"YOU WORK HARD TO BE GOOD
AND THEN WORK HARD TO GET BETTER."
Welcome to my page!!
Since very young age, I had a keen passion and talent for sports. I was always successful and very competitive and conquered many medals in several sporting championships.
While I was in Brazil, I practiced professional handball for about a year, I decided to live the sport to train indoor volleyball, which was my passion, practiced for about four years, got sponsored by college and later my city and got to state tournaments. I also practiced indoor soccer and track & Field games participating in high school. My Mom encouraged me to attend modeling classes. While growing up in Brazil I participate in “City Beauty Pageants”. I won many local pageants. When I was seventeen years old I was selected by a modeling agency in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I moved to Sao Paulo and leaved there for a few months when I realized I had started with eating disorders because of the negative impact of starvation as a model, I decided to go back home, joined the gym and began to take better care of my health. I moved to United States in 2003. Since I had absolutely no family here I had a difficult time getting into sports activities again. I tried to learn English as fast as I could to be able to study more about my new home and blend in with my surroundings paving away the path for achieving my goals. I began to get involved in sports and fitness activities again. I became more involved in exercise and nutrition. Within time my health and body started to show great improvements. In 2008 I became a personal trainer, with goals of helping other people achieve a happier and healthier lifestyle. I love what I do, I am a quick learner, very competitive, enjoy travelling, being outdoors and meeting new people. I am skilled in sports, arts, I enjoy 3D animation, cartoons and I love new challenges!
