«Modelling has helped me to know myself better, to learn how to live in solitude, to adapt to different settings and cultures, to respect diversity and to appreciate creativity and art. But modelling also made me grow up very quickly and detached me from the everyday experiences of youth. I had to learn how to live, over-exposed to an aesthetic analysis of my appearance. Fortunately, over time, and with the unconditional support of my family, I learned to gain perspective and to take myself less seriously.
Beauty is not a synonym for youth. It is imperfection, it is a smile, it is harmony, it is freedom, it is feeling comfortable in your own skin, and it is authenticity. Understanding this has taught me to take off my high heels and come back down to earth».
