Miss Earth Portugal 2017

DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD GROWING YEARS (8-13 YEARS OLD)
My childhood was quite nice, because I always received a lot of affection and a good education from my parents. I had the opportunity to participate in the holiday camps, so I met many new places and lots of children. Thanks to this participation I became a very sociable person.

ANY SPECIAL STORIES OR FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
An important fact in the life of my family is that we are descendants of a fisherman hero and very famous in my city Póvoa de Varzim in the nineteenth century, the "blind of May", nickname used by people to call the fisherman was very important in the century XIX, because it was he who helped to save the shipwrecks or bathers that were in danger in the sea of Póvoa de Varzim.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
I have always had an ordinary life, without great adventures. But undoubtedly one of the unusual experiences that happened to me last year which I did not imagine was having the ability to do, was traveling alone 18 years old in 2016 to a continent other than Europe (America) and feeling proud to overcome obstacles and represent my country in a teen beauty pageant.

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF THE COUNTRY YOU ARE REPRESENTING?
Portugal is a small country in size but great in culture and natural beauty. A country that is in the midst of adversity maintains the good disposition and power of its working people. I am proud to represent a nation that has pioneered the world and provided a fusion of cultures and diversity. Taking the name of Portugal in the chest is a great honor and responsibility.

WHAT TRIVIA ABOUT YOURSELF WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE?
Every year I participate in the festivities of my city and I love being able to parade in the parades and processions in homage to the Portuguese culture.
