Adriana Lima (37 years old) is the top Brazilian model among the highest paid in the world. She has nothing to envy her colleagues in their twenties. Rather. Born in 1981, of Portuguese, Swiss and Japanese origin, Lima was born in Salvador, where – only six months after his birth – he was abandoned by his father. It grows only so close to the mother, Maria Graça Lima, from which it takes the surname, but from which it learns above all that – before anything else – we must learn to rely on our own strength.
