“When dreams become reality, then in reality you`re living the dream”

Founding fashion label Uzurii fulfilled the ultimate dream of Shieglee Ferreira dos Santos, who was bron in Brazils Amazone rain forest and moved to the slum of Rio de Janeiro at the age of five. The young Shieglee had three big whishes: to have a pair of shoes of her own, dance like a real samba queen on one of the floats in a carnival parade and sleeping in Rio de Janeiros most beautiful hotel for one night.

Never denying her roots Shieglee now inspires, encourages and helps others to achieve their dreams. Uzurii actively supports various charities like UNICEF to help the disadvantaged youth in their quest for better lives.
