Her manager went on to state about his client that “She is super happy and proud to represent all her community. She hopes this opportunity shall be another step to break barriers.”
As for Sampaio herself, she shared a backstage picture of her wearing a bathrobe in her Instagram account.
“Backstage click @vspink #bastidores #new #vspink #campaign #representatividade #diversity #beauty #selfie #model #life #fashion #usa #vstorm #valentinasampaio #bomdia," she wrote.
She also uploaded another a picture of herself laughing while enjoying a beautiful sunset writing “Life is amazing... Love more and hate less, hate is useless, just do not waste time with it!”
