Antonini did everything to ensure that her life was not ruined. As she was about to go out at 5 am to celebrate the new year with her boyfriend in Rio de Janeiro, she was hit by a drunk driver.
An excruciating accident that forced doctors toamputate her leg. But Paola, who had started a modelling career in Brazil, decided she would continue to live as she did before.
But her courage does not stop there. Although modelling is a shallow job, she decided not to hide her prosthesis:
I want to be a model for other amputees.
She continues to participate in Brazilian fashion shows and to collaborate with many creators...with a lot of optimism and relentlessness! She still works out as she did before and regularly post pictures on social media. On Instagram, she has more than 600,000 followers who admire her and consider her a 'warrior'.
