Overview

As a school girl, Adriana Lima won many beauty competitions, yet she never planned to become a professional model. Luckily, Lima had a close friend who did dream to become a model, but she didn't want to do it alone. Therefore she asked Lima to enter along with her to a local Brazilian models contest. Lima agreed, and soon the contest sponsor asked her to take a part in the competition. Not long after, when Lima was only fifteen years old, she won first place in Ford's “Supermodel of Brazil”, and decided that her looks can be translated to a successful career.
