Hello guy,

Yesterday was the Beyond Representation – Inclusivity & Fashion Panel at Fashions Finest.

It was amazing to be a part of it and share the stage with such well known panellists. I wrote a poem that I recited at end of our talk and I would like to share it with you.

I have been thinking about it for a long time and it was fun but also a challenge to put it on paper.

My idea was to send a strong message in a short and smooth poem.

I really hope you enjoy it. Feel free to share it.

Much Love to you all.

“We are all one
It’s a forest, it is us
In its magnitude, in it’s beauty, in it’s power
Each leave, each branch, each trunk is unique
How weird would be to have a forest with all the trees with the same size, height…
To kill the magic is to make standard
Why lose this identity?
We are all different,
This is the fun
This is the perfection
Let’s Celebrate our diversity
Let’s be happy and empower ourselves
At end we will comeback to the same place
To be part of the same soil.
Where we are all one
With no difference.”

…With a background in fashion, I am passionate about inclusive fashion and leading a healthy and active lifestyle. I live in London and I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and life experiences to raise awareness of inclusion, fashion, and healthy lifestyles. I have been in a wheelchair since 1992 and played wheelchair tennis from 2003 until 2009 representing Brasil and winning a doubles silver medal at the 2007 Para Pan Am Games. …

 

Many people dream of a career of being a model. Not so long ago, a career in modelling would have been completely unthinkable for wheelchair users. As a model, I am subject to exactly the same demands as every other model. In other words, I have to be very disciplined when it comes to my diet, I have to be active, and, of course, I have to look after my appearance ….
