“Flight with determination,
embrace life with passion, lose with class and win with boldness, because the
world belongs to those who dare and life is too much to be insignificant.” (free translation - Augusto Branco).
And that is exactly how this
actress has been living her life.
Born in Brazil, she grew up a
tomboy among all her cousins; climbing trees, jumping through windows, in a
corral full of cows and bulls, always with skinned knees. Later, when time to
choose for College, she had a hard time. Living her family in a smaller town,
she moved to the capital, Sao Paulo. Always flirting with the idea of being an
actress, she thought this would never happened. Mia went for her second option,
to be a journalist, but this also was confusing. Between the comings and goings
between Journalism and Fashion programs, she finally set herself and got her

She worked many years as a TV
Host, but still, inside a piece was missing. She had a successful career and

She also believe that taking care
of her body and mind is a crucial thing, specially for actors. She exercises
everyday and whenever possible, she tries to do it outside. She loves contact
with nature and animals, and of course, love Miami and it’s beaches.
“Few months ago I was with my dog
