Soleful Beauty

Walking in Someone Else's Shoes

Click here to see who it is.
Every shoe has tongue,
They all have a sole.
Every shoe has a heart
And a story to be told.

No matter what they look like
Whether old or new,
They are all quite different
Every single shoe.

Take the time to learn
What they have to say.
A whole different person.
Will be revealed today.

Her beauty causes envy.
Men fall at her feet.
What's it like to be the measure
Of beauty we all meet?

She is of African, Native South American and Swiss descent. 
She speaks Portuguese, English, French and a bit of Spanish and Italian. 
She was raised by her Mother and Grandparents and she came from very limited means. 
Her father walked out on her and her mom when she was 6 months old.
She is very religious and was shy around boys when she was younger.She attends church every Sunday and is a devout Catholic.  
When she was younger, she studied to become a nun and often takes a Bible backstage to read.
She does charitable work helping with an orphanage, "Caminhos da Luz" (Ways of Light), located in Salvador. 
She helps with construction to expand the orphanage, and buys clothes for poor children in Salvador, Bahia. 
She appeared on Var mısın? Yok musun?, the Turkish version of Deal or No Deal, where her prize money went to a hospital in Istanbul for children fighting leukemia.

This is a very important "flipside" to a person in the center of the body image controversy. It is interesting to me that she is more beautiful as a person who speaks several languages than a person modeling lingerie.
