The Brazilian model shared an Instagram photo along with a real message which many women can relate to.

In the photo below she added a captioning saying, "I had received a call for the possibility of filming a sexy video of me to be posted and shared on social media. Even though I have done many of this type, something had changed in me, when a friend approached me to share that she was unhappy with her body, then it made me think.... that every day in my life, I wake up thinking, how do I look? Was I going to be accepted in my job? And in that moment I realized that majority of woman probably wake up every morning trying to fit a stereotype that society/social media/fashion etc imposed."
