Nathalia is a young lady who really enjoys life to its fullest. She is a very positive person and has learned to believe that the sky is the limit. The reason why she started competing was for a personal goal and to have the motivation to wake up everyday and feel accomplished by the end of the day. Nathalia truly believes that she is a very blessed person, because she has gone much further than what she ever expected. In 2009, Nathalia competed in the Ft. Lauderdale NPC Bikini competition just to experience it. However, since then her life has completely changed. The night of her first contest, She got signed by one of the biggest management companies in the industry. After that, Nathalia received a full spread in Flex Magazine. Both are something completely unheard of for a rookie.
Later, Nathalia found out she couldn't compete in the NPC National Bikini Championships because of her citizenship and she couldn't go back to her home country, Brazil, to compete because they didn't have the bikini division yet. Nathalia petitioned the IFBB Professional League for the opportunity to receive her pro card as an international athlete and got granted her IFBB professional status. The the biggest invite for her was to become part of Team Nutrex, which was a dream come true. Nathalia has always used Nutrex products and saw their ads in many of the major fitness magazines and always thought how awesome it would be to be that "girl!!!"
