It’s going to be the “25 facts about me”. Everyone have done it, it’s super cool.
You can say “Since now I’m a Youtuber, let’s see if I can do this…”
That everyone have already done…
Hey, guys! So, the production already challenged me to do a video that every Youtuber have already done…
Oh, cut that out! Just add to that “bloopers” part!
Guys, here is the deal… I became a Youtuber
so let’s do that “25 facts about me” video!
Ok, I’m gonna think here and if anything goes wrong you can edit it out…
Favourite subject in school?
Geography. It has always been Geography.
How ironic, huh? It seems like I already knew I was gonna go all around the globe!
Selling sacolé. (It’s typical in Brazil; it’s basically frozen juice, like a popsicle inside a plastic bag)
I used to sell sacolé and it was my first job. Every Wednesday there is a fair in my hometown,
so I used to walk around with my styrofoam box full of sacolé, which is actually called “flau”.
I would go around town selling flau, sacolé.
What would you do if you didn’t play soccer?
What would I do… I love music, so I believe I would try to do something with music.
If it would work out, I don’t know, but…
Could you show us a little something?
Oh, my voice… My voice sounds terrible right now! But…
Every country you have lived.
Brazil, Sweden and United States. I’ve lived in 3 countries.
How many languages do you speak?
Well, it depends on how desperate
I am! I could say I speak some Swedish, some English, I try to speak Spanish, when needed, and Portuguese!
Tell us something in Swedish!
Ok, let’s try it…
Ok, translate it now…
I said that it is really hard answering these questions while getting my makeup done,
but life doesn’t stop, so since I have an event later, I’m doing two things at the same time:
getting ready and answering the questions. That’s what I said.
Your best qualities?
I don’t like talking about my qualities, I would rather people tell me them.
So, I’m gonna leave it with you guys, especially the ones who have been following me and my work.
I hope you guys have something nice to say!
What about the negative sides about you?
Well, there are many,
but I think that one of the main ones is not being able to say “no” in situation that I need to.
Your favourite food?
My favourite food…
Well, since is what I ate the most in my childhood, it would be some rice and beans, pasta, flour…
I used to eat chicken, steak…
But since now I’m vegan, no animal protein for me! It’s been 7 months of me being vegan!
What do you do the most on the internet?
Well, besides communicating with my family, of course, I can communicate with you, my fans,
and also read newspapers, specially the sports ones.
Do you collect something?
I have a bunch of jerseys. But it wasn’t something I intended to have!
I was given so many, in the clubs and teams I played at..
So I ended up having a lot of jerseys. I mean, until my friends come over and get a bunch!
I didn’t mean to collect them, I just do because they’re gifts.
I’m gonna have to do something now that will bother you a little bit…
I’m gonna answer it but I don’t have to look straight to the camera…
I’m gonna put black shadow right at your lower lash line.
It’s all good! Go ahead!
I love brazilian music… so it would be pagode, samba, country music, forró… I cannot pick only one genre.
I really like that movie “Dois Filhos de Francisco”. It’s such a motivational movie.
What about TV shows?
“Coisa Mais Linda”! It’s about music, about Bossa Nova in Rio, so it is my favourite TV show.
Favorite place in the world.
Dois Riachos, Alagoas. (her hometown)
Who is your sport’s idol?
It is hard to say, because I didn’t have someone to have the role of my idol, to motivate me,
because I have always been motivated through the story of my family, my mom’s story.
But, when I started playing, I loved to see Rivaldo play, then came Ronaldo, Ronaldinho gaúcho…
What about women?
See! I answered all with guys.. I always had guys as references,
because when I started I rarely saw women's soccer on television.
I ended up meeting Sissi a while after, when I got to to play at Vasco, in 2000, but it was a really fast meeting.
I only started to know the amazing women that played when I started playing with them!
What do you hate the most?
Was that directed to someone?
Well… No, no… I didn’t!
Your biggest addiction?
I don’t have one! I used to, years ago.. But know, working a lot and everything, I kinda lost it…
I liked playing video games. I used to be good at it, but today, when we are with the national team
and I play with the girls, they are way better than me!
Your best friend?
My three dogs.
In Orlando I have my three dogs: Zoey, Zeca and Tommy.
And now we are working to finish a kennel, a shelter in Dois Riachos to…
I get emotional! You cannot make me emotional, I’m getting my makeup done!
Talking about animals touches me deeply, and I didn’t even like dogs when I was younger…
Not that I am old!!
Because I already got bitten. I used to have panic, until I started living and interacting with a dog on a daily basis,
so it completely changed my perception on dogs.
Now, we are finishing this project of this shelter for dogs in Dois Riachos!
Your biggest accomplishment?
My biggest accomplishment in life was, without a doubt, giving a better life to my family,
my mom especially.
It’s an emotional accomplishment.
A trick to dry your eyes out is breathing in through your nose, and breathing out through your mouth!
All done! Keep going!
I don’t think I have one… As I said, I don’t like fakeness, ingratitude...
But since that happens a lot, you cannot get attached to these types of things, disappointments…
Otherwise you won’t live. Yes, I made mistakes, but I don’t regret anything in my life.
What about a disappointment on your athletic life? Something you didn’t achieve…
Well, when you lose a World Cup final, an Olympic Games final, you get disappointed,
but the sport doesn’t give you time to be defeated, you have to get over it and move on!
Best gift you’ve ever gotten?
Being nominated to be an ONU ambassador.
I’m an ambassador since 2010, but I used to have another duty there.
Now I’m with ONU Women, which is more directed towards women sports, empowerment, gender equality…
People may thing that I just started working with them, but I started in 2010. Just to clarify.
Your zodiac sign?
Are you into astrology?
I don’t understand a single thing about it! All I know is that I’m an Aquarius. If it’s good or bad…
Would you like to have a super power? Which one?
Everyone says that they would like to have a superpower to change the world.
I would like to have a superpower to change the perspective that people have on the world.
A dream that didn’t come true yet?
I believe it’s a mutual dream… Seeing Brazil winning a medal at the Olympic Games, at a World Championship.
But this dream is not only mine; it’s a dream for a lot of brazilians
and especially for the girls that keep fighting for that, playing for that.
So, if not in my generation, may it happen in the future!
So, to finish it up, a word to define you.
No, I’m joking!
Courage. Courage to face the world, the difficulties.
Having courage, everything else come along as well… Determination, perseverance…
But you have to have courage to face it all!
Let me just put this one before the glue dries out…
Are they both on?
I cannot finish the video with only one eyelash on!
Could you guys do something to make my eyes stand out?
Sometimes they can look light brown, like a honey color...
This lighting makes them even better! IS there a way for me to walk around with this lighting everywhere?
I don’t like the feeling!
