Zilia Monteiro – In Her Shoes


This month we delve into the exciting world of Zilia Monteiro, Managing Partner at Bahrain Ballet Centre and music enthusiast.

What’s your proudest achievement?
Being an independent woman!

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
“If it is to be, it is up to me!” and “Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not ok, it’s not the end!”

What skill would you like to learn?
Definitely get better at swimming!

Cats or Dogs?
I’m an animal lover, so both! But as a dog owner, I’m honestly partial to the second. In fact, I love dogs so much that I started a healthy doggie treat business with my friend, Carolina. Check out @bubblesmiche on Instagram!

What song would you sing at Karaoke?

What’s your favourite film?
There’s so many… but let’s start with Casablanca!

What is your dream holiday destination?
Any place with less people and a lot more nature!
