Tell us about a bit about yourself? I’m a 41 year-old-woman with the energy and the style of a 20-year-old girl. I love to live life intensely day after day as if it’s the last day! I’m a mother of an 18-year-old boy and I’m absolutely crazy about him! I’m a full-time model, influencer and soon will be acting as well. I’ve lived in England for the last 20 years but I’m Brazilian.

What was your initial reaction when you were chosen to shoot for FHM? I was extremely happy as this was one of my dreams!

How do you prepare for a shoot? I love to make sure that everything is good and ready for it! Hair, body, nails and outfits.

Describe your perfect man… My perfect is the one that stands by my side in every way, gives me protection, love and affection.

What is your ideal date? A lovely dinner in an amazing restaurant and a beautiful hotel room.

What do you do for fun? I go out with friends or family to enjoy the day by the beach or swimming pool. And I love shopping too!

Tell us a bit about your most embarrassing moment? When I was entering a club and I fell in front of everyone in the queue.

What would you say is the most difficult part about being a model? The most difficult thing is to always be in shape as I love food and I can gain weight easily.

What are you most looking forward to doing this year? A reality show.

Lastly, what is your life motto or a quote that means a lot to you? For those who I love, I will sacrifice!
