It’s 2016 – The year of the Olympics for Brazil and as the host the country will put on a beautiful face and spectacle to show the world the best that it can be. There is another exceptional face coming from Brazil and that is in the form of MODE’s “The Art Of Beauty” Issue cover model Beatriz Fortunato.
Brazil promotes its status as a mixed race nation, however, when it comes to the modeling and television world people of color have not always been well represented as part of the nation’s image. Perhaps with Beatriz’s rise to fame that incongruency is finally beginning to end. Alexander Michaels, Mode Lifestyle Magazine’s President said, “Brazil is a diverse country with many challenges but also with an abundance of opportunities and talented people. Beatriz and her life story is a testament of great things that can come from this amazing country.” Beatriz has risen from a life of obscurity as a resident of the Jacarézinho community in Rio de Janeiro after winning the Top CUFA contest beating out over 20,000 candidates from all over Brazil.
