At sixteen life strikes hard and she loses her mum which puts her
in charge of the whole family including her little sister. All this
happens while she takes care of her COU studies, a job as a clerk
and her musical career. She doesn´t get any money from her
shows but she participates with great enthusiasm. March 1996 –
During one of these shows she calls the attention of a samba show
promoter who offers Dunia a contract to work in Spain as a dancer.
The idea of bringing her childhood dreams to life seduces Dunia

architecture, quit her job and start rehearsals on the double. July
1999 – At nineteen she arrives in Gran Canaria island, Spain
and surrounded by her new dancers she performs in every single hotel
for the amazement of both northern Europe tourists and travellers.

company to premiere various shows in Nov. 2000 like flamenco, juggling
performances, contortionists, trapeze artists, comedians, magicians,
etc...displaying incredible skills and talent for business.

new area of expertise: Go-go dancing and strip teasing. She enjoys
her new activity in disco bars and gives herself 100% in all performances
until aware of her beauty, spontaneity and personal discipline...
Early steps into porn...

exciting challenge - the world of porn. She emails numerous talent
scouters until she is answered back from Milkyway. Guys from Milkyway
wish to launch Dunia in one of the most important festivals in Europe,
the Barcelona Erotic Film Festival (FICEB). In the words of Milkyway
agents and representatives “Dunia´s jump into porn has
unfolded naturally as the ultimate step she had to climb”.

27 that she stars in her first adult film Sextlye a very innovative
project in the Spanish industry of porn filmed in documentary format
where the hottest sexual scenes are portrayed through various hip-hop
disciplines. Success keeps knocking on her door and during that
month of September she is called to star with legendary Roberto
Malone and master Rocco Sifredi directing. Soon after this scene
she stars in a French expensive budgeted soft film produced by IFG
