Amanda Wellsh is a stunning and very busy Brazilian model. She took a little time out from her career in 2011 to have a son and be a full time mom, but in 2014 she reappeared with new test shots and once again emerged as a model to have on the runway and in publications. She got her start in modeling in 2005. She stated she was 14 when she was discovered locally in Patos de Minas. She was intent on going to school and only worked when it would not interfere with her education. By 2008 she was finished with school and attended a university, but she was modeling more and more. It was at this point she was willing to take on some international modeling roles. She credits her comeback after the birth of her son as the moment her modeling took off internationally.
In an interview, Wellsh stated that it was motherhood that provided her with more of a focus and sense of determination. Her first fashion week for New York was definitely amazing and she caught the eyes of many. She has stated that she doesn’t play around when it comes to work. She takes what she can do and makes sure her discipline and focus are there, while also taking time to be with her family.
