Nasci em Monte Mór, interior de São Paulo. Desde pequenina aprendi a viver da terra e respeitar o tempo de cada estação. Brincava na beira dos rios, tomava banho de chuva e ser feliz era o maior compromisso de toda a criança.
I was born in Monte Mór, in the interior of the State of São Paulo. When I was a little girl I learned to live off the land and respect the time dictated by each of the four seasons. I used to play on the river banks and run about in the rain, at a time when the mission of every child was simply to be happy.
