Celebrated for her achievement in joining the “new and improved” Victoria’s Secret, Valentina Sampaio told Vogue:

“Imagine a world where it is not news that a transgender model has been appointed by a fashion brand,” she says. “Wouldn’t that be amazing?! Because it would mean that it is normal and it is happening all the time. I want to see this across all communities. Ultimately I want to live in a world with more respect for every kind of human being.”
