My name is Cecília Almeida, I’m 23 years old, I was born in the city of Teresina in the state of Piauí, located in the northeast of Brazil. The country in which I will have the honor and great opportunity to represent the 50th anniversary of Miss Intercontinental! I have always been involved in the art world, and at the age of 5 I started doing classical ballet, and after 12 years I graduated in dance! Dance for me is one of the most sublime sensations there is, both for the body and for the mind. At 12 I started working as a model, and I was able to learn a lot about people, points of view and believing in my own ability! As a result, today I minister workshops to girls who are starting their careers in the field. I also have a degree in physical education, the human body and its aspects have always vaccinated me, as well as sports! Today I use my training to promote health and fullness of life to elderly women in a neighborhood in my city, with classes aimed at this age group. Being a miss was something that happened suddenly, I didn’t dream of it. But it was one of the best surprises of my life, because I discovered that I could do more, that I could be the voice of many people, draw attention to many issues through my platform of influence. And how amazing is the ability we have to touch other people’s lives through our story and the message we share. And because of so much pride and love in representing my people and my country, that I am extremely happy and looking forward to being with all the other participants in Sharm el sheikh and making it an unforgettable event!
