Where were you born and where do you live now? I was born in Southern Brazil and now live in Los Angeles.
Besides English, do you speak any other languages? Yes, Portuguese and Spanish.
Favorite color? My favorite color is green because it reminds me of nature and gives me peace.
Favorite movie of all time? My favorite movie is ‘’Million Dollar Baby’’ because it shows the inner strength and sacrifice that a woman is capable of enduring. Favorite actress is Mary Louise.
Beach or pool? I really enjoy both, but I prefer beaches with warm water like in Brazil.
Read the book or watch the movie? My passion is reading books, but when I have someone with me that I like to spend time with, I prefer to instead watch a romance or comedy.
If you could be an animal, what would you be and why? I would be an elephant because they’re strong and great leaders. Elephants usually stay in small groups, but they’re extremely loyal to those around them.
What attracts you the most in a man? I want a man that I admire and feel proud to be around that has a strong personality, is intelligent, and kind. Mutual trust is also key to becoming open and comfortable with each other. I also believe that any man who has not forgotten the basic rules of being a gentleman will surely have a great woman by his side.
Biggest turn on and turnoff? My biggest turn on is when a man isn’t afraid to be who he truly is no matter who is around him. When a man is trying too hard or is clearly not being himself that is my biggest turnoff.
Describe your perfect date… I love surprises so the perfect date for me is when he surprises me with something and treats me like a queen. When a man treats me like that I reciprocate and treat him like a king.
Describe yourself using 3 adjectives. Sincere, spontaneous, and ambitious.
Tell us a secret nobody else knows… I am so romantic even though I don’t express it with other people. Another thing is I love watching cartoons.
We can tell from your body you work out regularly, please tell us about your diet/nutrition and fitness routine. When healthy eating becomes a lifestyle, we are healthier and happier. My diet/nutrition is easy for me because I love it and I don’t crave other foods like sweets or fried foods. I am passionate about tea, vegetables, lights meats, nuts, and fruit. I love to cook, so I prepare my meals for a whole week at once. I usually go to the gym 6 days a week. My gym workouts are usually with heavy weights. Also, I love biking and hiking in Los Angeles because we have beautiful places to go. I am learning Yoga, and whenever I can, I play volleyball on the beach. I have a very active life, which makes me happy and motivated. I love taking care of my body with the help of my body treatments like “Vhape” and Brazilian massage techniques like “Miracle Sculpt” to remove cellulite and improve blood circulation. So, I am always ready to enjoy California’s weather and beaches.
Where is your favorite vacation destination and why? I would love to travel to the Maldives because I love the warm water and enjoy all the things the island has to offer. I cannot believe that place is so magical.
Have you ever been to Australia? If not, would you like to visit someday? I have never been to Australia but I have friends who live there and they always talk about it. I can’t wait to go and learn more about the culture.
Congrats on your Playboy Australia cover! What does this mean to you? It means a lot; I am so honored to be part of Playboy Australia. In many ways it is like a dream come true.
What do you think of when it comes to Playboy and the iconic bunny? I think the iconic playboy bunny represents the beauty of women in a classy but sexy way.
What is your biggest challenge as a model so far? I believe it has been to reconcile the life of a model with the studies and career of dentistry. I have to be very focused and organize my time in order to take care of myself, eat well, go to the gym and take care of my body and mind.
If you could change any one thing in the world, what would it be and why? Inequality. Only when we can all respect the unique value and contribution of every human being can we truly conquer racism and accomplish our true potential as a society.
Who inspires you the most? My grandmother. She has had an unbelievable and lifelong passion to make a difference in our family. She puts her heart and soul into our family endeavors and exceeds any personal goals that she sets out to accomplish.
Where do you see yourself 10 years from now? I see myself having a solid dentistry career in the United States in addition to being a model. I can see myself with a big family, traveling the world, and living by the ocean with the perfect man by my side.
