Now I'm preparing to compete in the USA in bikini modeling, and compete in professional kickboxing too. I've participated in some competitions in Brasil, but for bikini modeling, I've been a finalist in some of them.
What is your background, and how did you get started in competition?
I like feel healthy and good looking all the time, outside and inside, in body and mind. And I feel young always. I changed my slim body into curves and a muscular body. I like having a little muscle, but I also like to keep my curves too. I like to show everyone that a healthy body doesn't depend on age.
I love to do pics all the time on the beach. Training or not, I enjoy doing that. I feel happy about all the goals I have achieved in life. I was born in a little country called Uruguay in South America, after moving to Brasil, and now to the USA. I have worked hard for everything in my life.
What is your training philosophy?
Train comfortable. Training is like a second job. I train every day, or 4 or 5 times a week. When I have something coming up, such as preparing for important pics or competing, I train 6 days a week. In the morning I do my fitness/bodybuilding routine. And in the afternoon I kick box or perform muay thay. I hate to diet. I prefer to train a lot using kickboxing, and eat less. For photo shoots I do this. My genetics help a lot.
