Tell us about the moment you found out you were going to be featured in the magazine. And what was your initial reaction? I was in shock. Playboy has always been a great reference for me, as a woman and as a model. I dreamed of seeing my photo on the cover like I saw that of so many women I admire. It’s literally a dream come true.

Can you share your favorite photo or post from the magazine and why it has special meaning to you? This photo symbolizes everything I seek. Connection with nature, calm. A free body, natural hair, in a place to reflect and relax. Intimacy speaks to elegance. You can feel the peace and sensuality of the moment.

When you’re not working, what helps you unwind and relax? I like reading books and traveling to unknown places. Go hiking, play with animals, and go out with friends (especially to eat).

What’s the weirdest fan encounter you’ve ever had? He was a passionate fan of my little feet. I met him on the street, he recognized me and asked for a photo…Kissing my foot. It was strange, I had never seen anything like it. But I thought it was cool, he was super polite, so I fulfilled his request.

Has it ever happened that you accidentally wore an outfit that you showed off too much in public? If yes, tell us here. Always happens. I joke that my butt has a life and personality of its own. The most embarrassing situation was without a doubt in a park. I was wearing a full skirt, it wasn’t short, and nothing showed, but I wasn’t wearing any panties. A very strong wind started, blowing away chairs, umbrellas, and, unfortunately, my skirt. I didn’t know what to hold, my bag, my hair, or my skirt.

What are some of your biggest dreams that you hope to achieve? In the short term, I hope to be able to buy my dream BMW. I’ve always been passionate about cars and this specific brand enchants me. However, my biggest dream of all is to build a shelter for abandoned animals. Being able to rescue them from the streets and mistreatment and give them a home with peace and love.

What’s the weirdest beauty tip or trick you’ve learned? I made a butt cream with my period blood. It may sound gross, but it’s magical! It has the power to rejuvenate the skin, leaving it firmer and more hydrated. I still use it today.

If you were stranded on a desert island with just one accessory, what would it be? A machete. To cut food and to defend myself.

What is your favorite snack? Sushi.

What’s the worst thing a man can do to completely turn you off? Be dishonest with me. I always say “I prefer the truth that hurts than the lie that deceives. I can’t stand dishonesty, falsehood.”

What advice would you give aspiring models? Invest in yourself, in your image. Don’t care about other people’s opinions and don’t try to change your way because of other people. You can achieve everything you want by being yourself! And if you do it this way, the path will be much easier. You have to be your biggest concern and your biggest achievement.

Thanks for talking to us. Do you have any last words for our readers? I want to say that I am immensely grateful to everyone who followed my path and contributed in some way to making my dream of getting here come true. Special thanks to my subscribers who always follow me and believe in me, I always do everything for you! If you want to get to know me better, come chat with me on my social networks, I love making new friends from different parts of the world.
