I have always enjoyed a good challenge.
At 16, I left the comfort of my home in Brazil and headed to California as an exchange student to live with a host family and experience “America” for a semester. In my thirst for new adventures, I hopped on a plane again in 2006 to study abroad at the University of Texas at Austin while pursuing my undergraduate studies, not knowing that a few years later I would be successfully completing a master’s degree from the same school—one of my biggest accomplishments if you ask me.
Though exciting, these experiences had a great deal of challenges, all of which helped to shape me into who I am today, someone who creatively solves problems, embraces the unknown, and is determined to succeed.
I have a constant need for learning and expanding my skillset. I believe in working hard, having a positive attitude, and trying new things. I believe in listening and asking the right questions. I believe in being a team player and making a difference.
