BEAUTIFUL DREAMER: JAMILY WERNKE MEURER

THIS IS JAMILY. SHE’S ORIGINALLY FROM BRAZIL, AND SHE TURNED HER WORLD UPSIDE DOWN WHEN SHE MOVED TO NEW YORK CITY TO PURSUE HER DREAMS OF MODELING. SHE’S ONE OF THE BEAUTIFUL DREAMERS WHO ARE RECLAIMING WHAT IT MEANS TO BE AN AMERICAN.

WHERE ARE YOU FROM ORIGINALLY? WHAT DO YOU REMEMBER MOST ABOUT IT?
SANTA CATARINA, BRAZIL.

WHAT PARTS OF YOUR CULTURE AND HERITAGE DO YOU BRING TO YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE?
I THINK THE BRAZILIAN KINDNESS AND POSITIVITY.

DESCRIBE IN A FEW WORDS WHAT YOU FELT WHEN YOU ARRIVED IN AMERICA FOR THE FIRST TIME:
I FELT LIKE I WAS IN A MOVIE. ALL THE CITY LIGHTS AND IT'S SIZE, IT WAS SOMETHING I HAD NEVER SEEN BEFORE.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO AMERICA? WHAT DOES IT REPRESENT AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU TODAY?
FOR ME IT REPRESENTS OPPORTUNITY, THE PLACE YOU WANT TO BE IF YOU WANT TO REACH SUCCESS IN YOUR CAREER. ALSO, IT IS WHERE YOU CAN EXPERIENCE A BIT OF EVERYTHING AND MEET PEOPLE FROM EVERYWHERE.
