Luma Russo
Ms. Brazil

Miss Charm 2023

Question: Every morning when you wake up, what do you believe to be the meaning of your life? What are you living for?

If I had to sum it up in one word.  Freedom.  Freedom being, being able to travel where you want, meet who you want,  to do what you want .  Be the woman you were meant to be.  Follow your dreams. To be able to achieve the knowledge, not only academically but the knowledge of culture and emotional intelligence.  To be able to reach your full potential.

Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou

Pretty woman wonder where my secret lies.

I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model 's size

But when I start to tell them.

They think I'm telling lies.

I say.

It's in the reach of my arms.

The span of my hips.

The stride of my step,

The curl of my lips,

I'm a woman

Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,

That's me

I walk into a room

Just as cool as you please,

And to a man,

The fellows stand or

Fall down on their knees.

Then they swarm around me,

A hive of honey bees,

I say,

It's the firein my eyes

And the flash of my teeth,

The swing in my waist,

And the joy in my feet,

I'm a woman

Phenomenal womn

That's me

Men themselves have wondered

What they see in me

They try so much 

but they can't touch

My inner mystery 

When I try to show them

They say they still can't see

I say,

It's in the arch of my back

The sun of my smile

The ride of my breasts

The grace of my style

I'm a woman

Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman.

That's me.

Now you understand

Just why my head's not bowed.

I don't shout or jump about

Or have to talk real loud.

When you see me passing,

It ought to make you proud.

I say,

It's in the click of my heels,

The bend of my hair,

the palm of my hand,

The need for my care.

'Cause I'm a woman

Phenomenally,

Phenomenal woman,

That's me.
