    Camila Alves: biography

    Camila Alves is a Brazilian-American model, designer, and television host.

    Childhood and youth

    Camila Alves was born on January 28, 1983, in Itambacuri, Minas Gerais, Brazil. She was raised in a family of farmers and one of seven siblings. Alves grew up in poverty and had to work as a teenager to help support her family. She moved to Los Angeles when she was 15 to visit her aunt and uncle, but decided to stay and pursue a career as a fashion model.

    Alves did not speak English when she first arrived in the United States, so she had to take English classes to improve her language skills. She eventually became fluent and continued her studies at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where she studied law. However, she dropped out after two years to focus on her modeling career.
