1. What is something not too many people know about you?
Something not a lot of people know about me is I’m half Brazilian on my mother side. She came to the US to go to college and met my dad there. I finally got the chance to meet my mother's side of the family this last summer. It felt like a piece of me I never knew was missing had been put back into place.
2. What are your biggest passions or hobbies?
I’m very passionate about helping people. Through my modeling, or my acting, whatever it is, I want to inspire people to live their life to the fullest. Living just for a paycheck is not living at all. Ask yourself, "Do you work on your dreams and your goals daily”. One of my favorite quotes that I now live by is “if your dreams don’t scare you, they aren't big enough”. I dare you to dream and I dare you to go out and chase those dreams wherever they my lead.
3. What are your goals for the future?
Some of the goals I have for myself in this new year includes getting more involved in acting and really putting my best foot forward when it comes to my future. I am in the process of moving to LA, which I think will give me better opportunities. I also plan to travel to at least one new country this year.
4. What is your definition of success?
I define success by that feeling of fulfillment inside of you. There are many different areas of life for you to be successful in and a lot of people get really caught up in the financial aspect, but ultimately that’s not what makes you happy. Success comes from a job well done, whether that’s caring for your family or from fulfilling a lifelong dream. To be successful you have to believe in yourself and work hard and the rest will come as needed.
5. Tell us something about the projects you’re working on.
My main focus this year is working on my acting career. I am auditioning for a couple of short films and a runway that I’m really excited about. My biggest goal is to get a lead role in a big film.
