Top Spanish Model Becomes a Nun, Gives Up Glamor and Acting Career

By    |   Monday, 23 Jun 2014 04:02 PM

A Spanish model and actress with a successful career gave it up to become nun after visiting a shrine and realizing that she had a calling.

Olalla Oliveros told the New Catholic Register she had an "earthquake" event occur when she visited Fatima, Portugal, and afterward, kept thinking of herself dressed as a nun.

Although she initially dismissed the idea as ridiculous, Oliveros eventually came to see the situation differently.

“The Lord is never wrong,” Oliveros told the Register. “He asked if I will follow him, and I could not refuse.”

The Daily Mail said Oliveros joined Spain’s semi-cloistered Order of St. Michael four years ago, but just recently announced her decision.

Oliveros’ career had been thriving, and in fact, her agent said she had just won a movie role when she made the decision to change her life, Christian Today reported.

The Daily Mail pointed out that Oliveros isn’t the first top model to walk away from her career to dedicate her life to God. Columbian model Amanda Rosa Perez became a nun in 2005, and told El Tiempo, “Being a model means being a benchmark, someone whose beliefs are worthy of being imitated, and I grew tired of being a model of superficiality. I grew tired of a world of lies, appearances, falsity, hypocrisy and deception, a society full of anti-values that exalts violence, adultery, drugs, alcohol, fighting, and a world that exalts riches, pleasure, sexual immorality and fraud. I want to be a model that promotes the true dignity of women and not their being used for commercial purposes.”

Oliveros' decision to become a nun was applauded by some online.
