Sara Pinto Sampaio
While she was in high school, she won a modeling contest in 2007 (when she was 16). But, she didn’t pursue modeling just after that. Her parents are really strict and didn’t allow Sara to skip school for modeling. So, after completing her schooling, she went to Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal to a university and completed her education.
Sara was not even allowed to skip school for even a few days. And, homeschooling was not an option for her in Portugal.

Sara’s debut fashion show was Ready to Wear – Spring / Summer 2012 where she walked for Blumarine, and Kevork Kiledjian.
She works with a personal trainer. The trainer makes her to do exercises for one hour in a day and five days in a week. It mainly consists of exercises without machines or any equipment. She starts with boxing for 20 minutes. After boxing, she switches to cardio to increase her heart rate and burn the calories. Cardio is followed by some floor exercises to work on particular body areas such as butts, abs, and especially legs. Models need to have long, and toned legs to look sexy.
While traveling also, she manages her workout as it is mainly the floor exercises, for which she needs just a mat. Sometimes, the hotel in which she resides also has a gym.
