At the top of her flourishing career, a beautiful Spanish model has given it all up to become a nun.
Olalla Oliveros, a beautiful and well known Spanish model who did advertisements, television commercials, and worked as an actress has given up her career and decided to become a nun. Last month, Oliveros entered the semi-cloistered Order of Saint Michael.

Oliveros is reluctant to talk about herself, but says she had an "earthquake" experience on a visit to Fatima and could not shake the image of herself dressed as a nun, which at the time she thought was absurd.

Eventually, she realized that the image in her mind was a calling. "The Lord is never wrong. He asked if I will follow him, and I could not refuse," Oliveros said.
Now she just wants to be an ordinary nun.
