Check out the exclusive interview now:
1. What sparked your interest and led you to choose a career as an actress and presenter?
Since I was little, I have always been very communicative and had a knack for cameras. I would spend the whole day watching talk shows and soap operas with my mother. I gradually fell in love with it, and over time, I started doing theater and realized that I was born for this.
2. How would you describe your journey as an actress and presenter so far?
I can't complain. Despite it being a very difficult industry to break into, I have done work that makes me very proud. Ever since I decided to move from Brasília to São Paulo in search of new opportunities, many good things have come my way. But there is still much to be achieved. With patience and competence, I know that great opportunities will come. I am preparing for them.
3. What are the main challenges and rewards of working in the fields of acting and presenting?
The main challenge is to stay in the industry. Sometimes, due to a lack of opportunities and financial stability, we may consider giving up quickly. However, the reward is seeing a finished work being delivered to the audience after going through various stages, from the birth of a script to video post-production. It's wonderful to evoke sensations in people through your art, study, and preparation. It fuels me even more.
4. How do you use the internet and social media to promote your work as an actress and presenter?
The internet is the biggest showcase an actor can have. I have always used social media to promote myself, update my work, and showcase some of my skills. Thanks to these platforms, I have been noticed by major brands I never thought of collaborating with.
5. Who are your main inspirations and references in the world of acting?
In acting, I really admire Maria Bopp. She fully commits to every role, without any vanity. I discovered her through a character on Instagram who makes various social critiques with a touch of humor. I think she is one of the greatest we have. As a presenter, I have always loved Sabrina Sato. She has been in the media for many years and still maintains the same essence. Her style is unique and captivates the audience. I adore that!
6. Do you believe that online presence and the use of social media are essential for the success of an actor and presenter today? Why?
I don't believe that being active on social media is essential to be a successful actor, but I do think it is the easiest and most accessible way to get noticed and showcase your skills. For me, Instagram stories and feed are my resume.

Don't give up on the person you want to become. There is a world of possibilities waiting for you when you decide to take risks and fight for yourself and your dreams.
