I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Daughter of two loving parents, Marcia and Rogerio, and older sister to Leonardo. I left home at fifteen, lived in Toronto where I went to Canada's National Ballet School, then moved to England over ten years ago to pursue a career in dance. Today I live in London, I'm a soloist with the Royal Ballet. My parents live in sunny Atibaia, where I spend most of my holidays. They own a ballet school, and as you can probably guess, this is how I got introduced to ballet. It became another passion of mine and one that would shape my life, but I'd say reading and writing came first.
