How did you get into the Music and Television world?
I grew up seeing my brother acting in soap operas and I always wanted to follow his footsteps.
I started doing small plays until the day I was casted for a commercial and since then I never stopped working and doing what I love.
I always loved singing and started learning to play the guitar when I was 12 but had lessons for just a month and stopped. I ended up learning by myself to play the guitar, ukulele and piano.
I LOVE music with all my heart and it's something that I'll never stop doing.
What is your biggest career goal?
My biggest career goal is a dream I have for a long, long time. Being on stage with my brother and a guitar, with thousands of people watching us and singing along to our songs. Just thinking about that gives me chills.

What advice would you give someone who wants to follow in your footsteps?
I consider myself a very happy and positive person, no matter what. I truly believe that positive thoughts create positive energy and negative thoughts create negative energy. That's why I always channel positive energy to everything I do and try to influence people around me to do the same... which is not always easy. Happiness and positivity are my life's philosophy ♥ I believe that's why I achieved everything I have so far!
What or who inspires you?
Without a doubt, my parents and my brother. A career in music and television is not always easy and my family is always there to support me and that's what keeps me going.

What's the most incredible destination you've ever visited?
Algarve, Portugal. I haven't traveled much yet, I left Brazil for the first time last year and since then I've visited a few countries. My favorite so far was the Algarve in Portugal. I absolutely fell in love with the beaches and really hope I can go back there soon ♥
