MEET & GREET WITH EMANUELLE RIBEIRO words Maisie Daniels - photography Ieva Lasmane - fashion Maisie Daniels - Hair & Makeup Emilie Louizides
Emanuelle Ribeiro at PRM is the nineteen-year-old who has made her way to London from her hometown of Guaramiranga, Brazil in order to pursue a career in modelling. At first, meeting with Emanuelle, it was clear to see that not only is she beautiful on the outside - what with her doll-like features and irresistibly gorgeous hair - but a pure beauty on the inside too. She is the perfect package of sweet meets confidence and kind meets determined. Attributions that have no doubt landed her some amazing work, take walking for ICEBERG, in just her 6 months of modelling.
There is no doubt that this young model is going to do sensationally well and is certainly one to be watched closely. And at F Word we got the chance to speak to her about her motherland, Brazil, what she thinks about London, her modelling aspirations and much, much more.
Maisie Daniels: Hey Emanuelle, thanks so much for being involved in our Ones2Watch feature. So tell me, where are you from?
Emanuelle Ribeiro: I am from Brazil. I was born in a small town in the interior of Ceará, called Guaramiranga, in the northeast of the country, but currently, I live in São Paulo.
M.D: How was it growing up there?
E.R: I have nothing to complain about as I am from the city. I did, however, grow up surrounded by nature and animals from my grandfather's farm, which I could always enjoy. I had a very free childhood which I also enjoyed very much.
M.D: Do you have any siblings?
E.R: I have two sisters and a brother.
M.D: How is the sibling dynamics like between you guys?
E.R: It's pretty good, and your standard sibling relationship. My brother, however, is my baby and we are very close and whenever we are together it's a party, we have a lot of fun!
M.D: How does your family respond to your modelling career?
E.R: At first the idea of me pursuing modelling came as a shock for them, perhaps because they had the fear that something bad may happen. However, as it is something that I always dreamed about and my parents always accompanied me, I have a lot of support from my family.
M.D: How often do you speak to or see your family?
E.R: I talk to them every day. It’s part of my day to day life.
M.D: You have been modelling for 6 months now. How have you found the whole experience so far?
E.R: Wow! It’s everything I ever dreamed of. I love this travelling life, new places, new people, this is a wonderful experience.
