Juju's coronation is scheduled for the beginning of this month, close to the 50th anniversary of Barroca da Zona Sul, promising to be a grand celebration to mark this significant moment in the carnival queen's career. With the school currently holding the 10th position in the Special Group, the parade is expected to be memorable, and Juju Salimeni will be there to bring even more brilliance to the catwalk.

In addition to the carnival, the fitness diva shares her intense preparation for this comeback, with more rigorous workouts, a strict diet, and samba lessons to ensure she is in her best shape on the avenue. Juju emphasizes her dedication and commitment to everything she sets out to do, and her expectation is to add to and deliver a spectacular performance alongside Barroca da Zona Sul.

The cover of Hooks International Magazine featuring Juju Salimeni is a true invitation to celebrate the infectious spirit of the Brazilian carnival. Her energy, beauty, and passion for the revelry overflow on every page, making it evident why she is hailed as the Fitness Diva of Carnival.
