BRita BRazil is an actress, songwriter, singer, poet, dancer, stretching teacher, producer, and she was also the first top model in Brazil, for 23 years.
From 1990 to 1994, she acted at TV Globo as Flora Própolis, a character created by the top comedian Chico Anysio, whose slogan was “Save the Nature!” inspired on her defense of the environment since the 60s. This character made BRita national known.
One of her last acting jobs was Indira in “Malhação”, a daily youth show, at TV Globo- 2014/2015.
In 2017, BRita accomplished 50 years of artistic career that began in 1967, at the age of 13, in order to have an active voice to defend the indigenous cause. Despite her indigenous activism, BRita has always been using her career for helping the poor kids, giving them love and education. She created the cultural center “Afro-Indigenous Children from Brazil”, a kind of “school” that she has led for 5 years, in a heavy risk located area, Brás de Pina, Pequerí slum, dominated by drug traffic. Unfortunately, in 2008, Brita had to quite this “school” in order to take care of both her parents, who were sick and months later, they had passed away. BRita has plans to continue helping the current kids, in this area.
