A model turned Instagram influencer has opened up about her career change.
Before her interest in social media, Letícia Andrade, 26, earned a law degree where she specialised in criminal services.
The influencer claims she was very interested in this area of criminal law as it offered a range of “financial possibilities” for her.
She said: “Every law student, or at least a large part of them is very interested in this topic due to the challenges this area brings.
“Law gives me security but fashion and this digital world of influencing brings me passion, fascination and it’s very different.”
Now Letícia, who claims social media was her “dream”, hopes to make a living on the internet.
She also says one of the reasons why she ditched her law career is because it’s hard to gain recognition alongside a male lawyer.
The model added: “It’s difficult to get the respect of being treated and seen as equal with a man.
“We are very underestimated and we have to show much more service to achieve a certain credibility in the market.”
But it hasn’t been the easiest transitions for Letícia.
She explained: “It is very hard, but if you organise yourself properly, you can do everything for now.”
The model also labelled herself as vain when it comes to her face and body.
Speaking about her routine, she revealed: “Every day I do heavy skin care, and I try to follow a schedule of hydration in the hair.”
Meanwhile, Letícia isn’t the only model to change her career in recent months.
Previously, a model ditched her tennis career to become an Instagram influencer earning £14,000 a month.
Yulia Pugacheva decided to swap her athletic job for the world of social media where she pockets a fortune from her sexy snaps.
Now she lives a lavish lifestyle in Miami, US, and has already starred in a car campaign at Pugachev Luxury Rentals.
She said: “I realised that making money on the internet is very easy.”
