BIO
Melissa Gurgel has always been a very positive, outgoing and persistent young woman. During her childhood she loved pretending to model at fashion shows and pose for photographs. She used to wear her mother’s dresses and shoes to pretend to be a grown-up. She was always very close to her family, especially to her brothers, who had a fundamental role in encouraging her into the beauty pageant and fashion world. Today, she is a strong person that goes after her dreams and goals.

Despite being one of the shortest during the Miss Universe Brasil pageant, Melissa does not shy away from her competitors. “It’s my attitude that made me win the crown”, said Melissa.

Melissa has been called “The Bombshell of Poisonous Catwalk”, which for her is a please.

“In Brazil, there are only tall women, just as there are only brunettes, skinny or chubby only. What defines the beauty of someone is not the height or color but the brightness she has and her ability to transmit it to others”, Melissa added.

The fashion design student began her modeling career at 15. Since then, came to spend some time in Sao Paulo and Miami in the United States. “I did casting for major brands and photographed some important campaigns. Since small watched contests with my mother and she always said that one day I would miss. Not that I am here today carrying out her dream and mine? “.

FUN FACTS:
1. She always does handstands before she starts a workout.
2. Whenever she leaves the kitchen, she always double checks if the refrigerator door is fully closed.
3. She likes to scare her friends when they are distracted.
