Valentina Sampaio on Memorable Career Moments
PS: What's your most pinch-me career moment so far?
VS: For sure when they told me I was confirmed for the Vogue Paris cover.
PS: What was one moment you can remember when you were made to feel like modeling wasn't for you, and how did you overcome that and move forward?
VS: When I was still modeling in Fortaleza (Brazil), I was canceled for a job when the client discovered I was transgender. That, at the beginning, left me really sad and I wanted to quit the business, but then it made me stronger because I wanted to show to everybody who I am and what I'm able to do!
