I am Catarina, I am 21 years old and at the moment I am a traveling model. I am based in Lisbon but I spend a lot of time traveling for shootings.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I would change my height. I'd like to be taller.
How did you start modeling?
I started modeling 4 years ago, or something like that. I started doing tfp photoshoots so I could have some portfolio and then I started doing it professionally.

I love it. But it's not an easy job. I love it because it's really my passion but I have to work hard.

I don't know if that distinguish me from the others, but I am very determined. I prefer to do something and regret it after than don't do it and thinking how it could have been. Also, I am such a big dreamer.

For the near future I plan to leave Portugal and go to another country.
