Gi Collins is a woman who embodies resilience and determination. Born and raised in Criciúma, Santa Catarina, Brazil, Gi faced adversity from an early age. At 19, she got married and became a mother to her daughter. Seeking a better life for both of them, she decided to take a risk and move to the United States.

Life in the new country was not easy for Gi. She found herself alone, raising her daughter and facing the challenges of adapting to a completely different place. However, Gi's determination was unwavering. She worked tirelessly, saved every penny, and began investing in real estate, believing in the long-term potential of this endeavor.

Her real estate investments started bearing fruit, and Gi saw her situation gradually improve. Life began to make sense, and her faith in God, which drove her to seek a new life for herself and her daughter, was rewarded.

In 2018, Gi met the love of her life, Scott. Scott was a successful entrepreneur in the investment sector and fulfilled all of Gi's dreams. The couple fell in love, got married, and had a son, Benjamin. Gi continues to manage her properties in the United States and Brazil, ensuring that everything runs smoothly.

Today, Gi and Scott are blessed beyond their expectations. The dreams that Gi had cultivated for years have become a reality. They not only own one but two luxury properties in Miami, including an oceanfront condominium in one of the world's finest hotels. Additionally, they have a mansion that became the most expensive non-waterfront property ever sold in Miami. Their influence also extends to Boston, where they own a luxurious apartment on the famous Newbury Street, alongside designer stores. In Brazil, they have a stunning mansion in Jurerê, where they enjoy relaxing beach vacations. And to top it off, they have fulfilled their dream of owning a collection of luxury cars, including a Ferrari, a Lamborghini, a G-Wagon, and a Tesla.

Looking back, Gi remembers the days when she arrived in the United States, pregnant and sharing a small apartment with others. She marvels at the journey she has traveled, with dreams that were not too grand and a life that was not unattainable.

Gi attributes all her success to God and her unwavering faith. Her journey is proof that with determination, hard work, and trust in something greater, it is possible to turn dreams into reality. In addition to her accomplishments, Gi is about to open a new door in her life. She is ready to share her story and inspire others to never give up on their dreams.

Check out the exclusive interview:

1. What were the biggest challenges you faced when moving to the United States and raising your daughter alone?

Certainly, being away from family in such a challenging time and the language barrier.

2. How did you meet your husband, Scott, and how has your relationship impacted your life and your businesses?

We met at a newly opened nightclub. I never imagined I would find the love of my life in a place like that, but I believe that when it's your time, it can happen anywhere. Before meeting him, my investments were solely focused in Brazil as I planned to return once my paperwork was sorted out. But everything changed when I met him. Together, we started investing in real estate in the US.

3. How do you balance taking care of all your properties in the United States and Brazil? What are the biggest challenges in this aspect?

In Brazil, I have someone who manages all my properties, which makes things much easier, but no decision is made without my permission. Here in the US, it's the same—they handle everything and keep me informed.

4. What is it like to have luxury properties in locations like Miami, Boston, and Jurerê? How has it changed your life and perspectives?

It makes me believe that when you dream and believe in yourself, anything can happen. For God, nothing is impossible.

5. What have been the most exciting or rewarding moments in your journey, from living in a shared apartment to achieving your current lifestyle?

There have been so many that I don't know where to begin. Certainly, the most exciting and rewarding moment was first and foremost my family, and then it was our wonderful home where we now live in Miami.

6. How has your faith in God played a crucial role in your journey to success? How does it influence your decisions and perspectives now?

I am a very religious person, and I don't make any decisions without seeking God's permission for literally everything. So, I believe that through my faith, I am indeed a tremendously blessed person, both financially and in my personal life.

7. How do you feel about the fact that your accomplishments and lifestyle open doors for you to become an influencer? What does it mean to you?

I want to use my story of overcoming challenges to help many others who are going through similar situations that I have faced. And through my Health Style, where I talk a lot about the importance of taking care of one's health, I aim to influence many people to change their habits and live a healthier life. I want to help women, especially those of my age, improve their self-esteem, take better care of themselves, and feel better about themselves.

8. Without revealing too many details, what can we expect from your biggest dream that is about to come true?

The only thing I can say is that it is related to the field of aesthetics.

9. Based on your experience and achievements, what advice would you give to those who are seeking to turn their dreams into reality?

My advice would definitely be not to give up on your dreams, even when they seem impossible. Keep pursuing them, don't give up, have faith in yourself, and most importantly, have faith!
