Anne de Paula Facts
- When Anne was much younger, she wanted to become a doctor. Almost every member of her family worked in health. Her mother is a radiographer, her father is a nurse, and her uncle works as a cardiologist. While growing up, she wanted to be like them, and her love for babies only made the feelings stronger. She thought that she was going to be a gynecologist, bringing them into the world.
- When Anne was in high school, she had a strong interest in sports and was involved in soccer. Modeling was never on her agenda, as she was a soccer player for both her school team and city team.
- Anne’s mother was the one who encouraged her to try modeling. Her mother was the one who gave her high heels and asked her to do a photo shoot when she was around 12 or 13 years old, even though she had never worn high heels. Anne continued doing photo shoots because she was starting to enjoy it as much as she enjoyed playing with the boys. Her mother sent her to an agency at the age of 14.
