A:I'm from Brasil, Rio de Janeiro.
Q:Describe your first time at the gym...
A:I forever did sports and physical activity. When I was 5 years old, I started taking lessons and ballet, jazz and tap (I graduated in dance). When I turned 14 years old I started doing gymnastics classes and I became interested in activity with weights because I was always involved in the fitness world. So at 16 years I was already in a gym training!! Now, I am training in my gym, XGYM! The best gym for my workout!

Q:Why did you choose the figure division?
A:My coach, Rogerio Camoes, always thought this category would fit me very well . To me the figure athletes have a better body, a beautiful feminine shape and they all look amazing!
Q:Describe being on stage...
A:It’s the best feeling of my life! When I'm on stage I feel an incredible energy and a complete happiness. I always dreamed of being an athlete and represent my country internationally.
