I think that maybe my attitude makes me different, as well as my unusual look.
What is your passion?
I love to sing and I love music, I’ve been singing since I was seven years old and I love to write music, it's one of my favourite things to do!
Do you have a favourite inspirational quote that inspires you to succeed?
“Believe in yourself” and “love yourself” - both are really important!
What do you prefer: Snapchat or Instagram?
Instagram. I like that you can edit your photos, and use different apps and effects. There are so many ways you can use Instagram and I like watching Stories of people I admire, as you really get a sense of their daily lives, which is cool.
What is your favourite ...
Holiday: Rome was my favourite holiday I’ve been on, the history there is amazing, it's so cool that there are such old ruins in such a cosmopolitan city, it’s such a beautiful city, and the food is amazing!
Music artist: I have so many, I listen to lots of different music so it would be impossible for me to pick one!
Food: Fruit, it's probably what I eat the most, it’s healthy and delicious!
If you could go anywhere in the world – where you haven’t already been – where would you go?
I’ve always loved Japan since I was little, it’s so different to Europe and I’d love to go an experience all of the culture. It’s so colourful and fast-paced there, and I’d love to experience it for myself!
Do you have a favourite model?
I love Estelle Chen who represented France at the Elite Model Look World Final in 2013, she’s so good on the catwalk and her attitude, she’s so sassy and beautiful.
How does it feel to represent Portugal at the 35th Elite Model Look World Final?
It feels amazing to be the Winner, it’s hard to put it into words. I heard about the competition on Instagram and YouTube and applied on the internet and never thought I would get this far. I’m really excited to meet new people, make new friends, and for all the new experiences that are ahead of me! My mom had encouraged me to go for the competition and I’m so glad she gave me the confidence to apply. I’ve always loved the fashion industry and have dreamt of travelling the world, and I love being in front of the camera, I’d love to be a top model and it is such an honour to be part of the World Final. So far at Elite Model Look, I’ve learnt that it is super important to believe in yourself and be confident, even if you are feeling a bit nervous and unsure.
