SueLyn lived most of her life around Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and initially returned to the United States in order to pursue her dream of becoming a doctor. Her friends, however, encouraged her to try modeling. Invited to participate in a fashion show at Fashion Week in New York City, she was discovered by an agent. The rest, they say, is history.
SueLyn describes herself on her Twitter as "The Brazilian Bombshell, International Magazine Cover Model, Actress, Host, Blogger, Author, Poker Face Queen, Cook, Show Lover, Fashionista, Writer, Go-Getter, Fearless." SueLyn Medeiros is fluent in English, Portuguese and Spanish.
When looking for a guy, SueLyn notices "his energy. I'm drawn to people that have a good aura and give off good energy." She downplayed the idea of having a pet peeve: "Letting things bother you is a mental choice. I don't let anything bother me enough to make it a pet peeve."
