We can’t get enough of the super talented “Brazilipina” TV host, singer and actress Daiana Menezes. And now her sister Laura has come to the Philippines to catch our eyes and capture our hearts.

Sisters Laura and Daiana Menezes both consider the Philippines their second home.
In one of Daiana’s endorsement renewal photoshoots, which Laura was also a part of, we got the chance to know more about Laura. 

Back in Brazil, Laura was finishing high school and never thought she would enter her sister’s world of show business.

“I wasn’t modeling in Brazil, I was just studying. I’ve never been into modeling before. Well, once we did this commercial in Brazil then when I was about to go and see if I got the job, something went wrong that day that made me say, ‘No, I don’t want to do it anymore,’ and then I just forgot about modeling,” she shares.

Last year, Laura shed her baby fats which made her feel more confident about her body and herself.

“I started to think about modeling and I said, ‘I lost weight so what can I do with it now that I feel more confident.’ So I talked to my sister,” Laura says. 

She went to the Philippines and since arriving, has been tagging along with Daiana. And just like her sister, she instantly fell in love with her second home.

“The country reminds me of home sometimes, it’s very nice. And my sister is amazing, she’s right beside me for support,” says the 18-year-old Anne Hathaway look-alike. 

For her first engagement as a model in the country, Laura has already been booked for print ads of a beauty company, an undergarment brand, and a big clothing line. 

Daiana has also been pushing her to try and learn more things.

“I’m trying to learn singing with Daiana and I am inspired by her passion. When I asked her if she is a singer, she answered, ‘I do sing,’ so that became my goal,” adds Laura. 

She also wants to try acting. Even as a child, Laura has always been amazed by actors and actresses. Laura looks up to Brazilian actress Bruna Marquezine and Hollywood’s supermodel Kendall Jenner.

She admits to not having a boyfriend right now, and for Valentine’s Day, she and Daiana had an “online promo” where lucky guys get the chance to go on a double date with the beautiful sisters. 

Someday, Laura dreams of having her own nice and comfortable house where she can spend time with her family and travel a lot. But in the meantime, she is focused on her budding career. With her sister Daiana behind her, and her beauty and talent, Laura has a long long way to go.
