Hey everyone, I’m 27, born and raised in London. I come from a Portuguese and St Lucian background. From the age of six I was a competitive cheerleader. I no longer compete but I coach my own cheerleading program.
I am now currently a Fire artist. Dancing and breathing fire. I do this with The Dolls UK.
Am a tattoo model and also a pro makeup artist… couldn’t just pick one could I!
What is your proudest achievement so far?
I would say it’s joining my company The Dolls UK, getting to travel the country doing something I love with an amazing group of girls! Female empowerment and good vibes all round.
Like getting to perform my fire routines at the great British tattoo show in front of hundreds of people, the adrenaline kick is incredible that I feel so empowered and free, in that moment I’m unstoppable.
I cannot wait to make this grow even more and show the world what powerful women can achieve.
Can you describe a typical day for yourself?
I prepare for my day job at the global flagship M.A.C store.
Makeup has always been a passion of mine, I love getting artsy and trying fun different things. Then in the evening I will go to my cheer babies. My team is called Fame Allstars UK, we compete world wide and placed 3rd in the USA which is incredible and we couldn’t be prouder.
How adventurous are you?
I love to try exciting new things! I will always want to succeed and be good at what I do, I guess that’s my competitive side coming out of me.
Try anything once… how else how do you know if you like it or not? ☺
If you could be a cartoon or anime character for real, who will it be?
Omg! Best question ever. Hands down. Sailor Moon. She is my favorite anime character and I even have her tattooed on my leg.
She’s a super hero with amazing powers and cute outfits. A brave sailor scout protector of the universe. She’s a romantic, clumsy and a cry baby. She would do anything for the people she loves and has a talking cat. Basically I think I am Sailor Moon already. Just got to find that talking cat!
Is there something you have always wanted to do or learn but haven’t had the time?
I always look at things and think I want to do that! I would love to be able to skateboard like a pro. I just wish I could stay on one longer than ten seconds.
Do you have any favorite quotes or motto you like to use?
Positive light attracts positive light. You get what you give out. I’m a strong believer in the law of attraction and energies and vibrations. Be kind to people, smile more, do what makes you happy and make your dreams real life goals!
What is the lamest attempt a guy has tried to know you?
Oh gosh. A guy came into my work. He approached me wanting to buy makeup for his mum, so I helped him pick a few things – after about 10 minutes of looking he then said, “So when am I taking you out for a drink”. Before I had the chance to politely decline and hide my awkward face I was saved by his friend who came over saying, “Hurry up. How long does it take to pick your girlfriend a present!“ Busted Romeo.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Marcellina. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexy comes in so many forms. Sexy oozes confidence, it’s a glow, it’s a feeling, it’s a twinkle in the eye, it’s a laugh or the smile. Sexy is what you feel and how you present it.
Let it shine ❤
