'To God, you are the most beautiful thing that exists'

I was discovered by a modeling agent when I was 14 and went to São Paulo to do some sample modeling tests. (São Paulo is a vibrant place, where everything happens, like New York City.) Soon, I was selected to be represented by a big agency in São Paulo, so I moved there. And then I started to get a lot of jobs with magazines, catalogs, and also to walk the runway.

While I was there, I wasn't going to school. Instead, I lived in an apartment building with other girls of the same age, and there was a guardian there from the agency who took care of us. And I went back and forth to visit my family.
