I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, the city I love most in the world until today. My passion for Rio de Janeiro makes me switch from being seducted and passionate to feeling anxious and worried. Probably, just like all passions. It's a breathetaking place and I'm never tired to explain it to my foreigners friends. Since I was a kid, I travelled a lot with family around this country with continental proportions. I can say I learned Brazilian History orally, during our family expeditions from North to South. This little history helps to explain the career I chose: journalism. At 17 years-old, I went to Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, where I studied Social Communication and Journalism. From childwood to university, I had the chance to learn English, Spainsh and French. As journalist, I worked for important newspapers, as O Globo e O Dia. Also, I worked as freelancer reporter for Reuters in Rio. In 2007, I got the first place in the selection to the Master in Communication and Culture at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro. There, I won two scholarships to develop my research about youth and political participation in the new millenium. In this period, I worked as volunteer teacher in a poor community in Rio. At the moment, I work for the biggest Brazilian telecom company in Brazil, called Oi, with corporate communication and sustentability projects.
