The first thing you should know about me is … I was born and raised in Angola. I am my best self when … I eat something that I love. Home feels like … Peace. My star sign is… Aquarius. It suits me because … I’m very curious, open to new things, free and very talkative. I feel most glamourous when … I put on a timeless dress, high heels and a special red lipstick. I start my day by … Having a very good breakfast. I can’t have a good day without a good breakfast. It’s impossible for me. The most important lesson I’ve learned is … To enjoy life, family and friends like there’s no tomorrow, because there really isn’t. At least not guaranteed. Who are you when you’re alone? A crazy, loud person obsessed with loud music and dancing non-stop.

A secret I’ll never tell is … I’ll never tell it. My first memory of modelling is … Trembling backstage on my first show. My favourite film is … I don’t have a favourite one, but one of my favourites was gifted. The quality I admire most in others is … Empathy. I’m inspired by … My grandmother. When my imagination runs free it … Makes me feel like I have control over my whole life, especially my future; because most of what I imagine is what I aspire to attract. If I wasn’t modelling, I would be … A paediatrician.

The music that fortifies me is ... I am a music lover and I can listen to a little bit of everything. It really depends on my mood, so I can’t say for sure one song that fortifies me. But I have to say that one that I really love is Another Day In Paradise by Phil Collins, just because I think it has a good message for the world.

CHANEL jumpsuit and necklace.
My friends would describe me as … Crazy and funny. If I could be anywhere, I’d be … As of right now, in Angola. Because I haven’t been there or seen my family for over a year. My fondest childhood memory is … Running away from the house and going to dangerous rivers without my parent’s permission. But also getting my ass whooped after that. Company or solitude? Depends on my mood.

I won’t compromise ... My belief that humans should be treated with respect. I’m energised when … I’m surrounded by the ones I love and love me. The future looks … Generally speaking, it looks kind of scary. A tradition I hold onto is … Manifesting gratitude in some way at some point along the day.
