Other information
BUSINESS
She and her twin sister Daniela, along with members of the Clube de Regatas do Flamengo, co-founded a swimming performance show business named Sirenas. "The concept was born to a wonderful idea that we all had. We wanted to show our sport in a more free and spontaneous way than in competition, where we have limits in terms of music time, make-up and figures. We also want the sport to be more known, bringing on more girls to practise it." (Sirenas Instagram page, 10 Apr 2018; flamengo.com.br, 02 Feb 2017)
