I love travelling.Meeting new people always changes my perspective of looking at things and re-charge me for a bndy school of life.

 

3) What are your goals with this experience? If we met at the end of your stay, which achievements would you like to tell your friends you had.

 

Goals:

  • Learn Portuguese;
  • Learn Brazilian political economy;
  • Make meaningful connections here.

 

Achievements that I would like to tell my friends:

  • Went to the Jesus statue in Rio!
  • Learn portuguese!
  • Had some reckless travel stories!

 

4) How do you feel today that you are starting this experience? Can you describe your feelings?
I think I’m optimist and ready for the challenges.The Brazilians I’ve come across so far are really helpful and friendly. But I’m sad that I brought too much formal clothes and not really warm clothes for this freezing weather. I had been a tropical kid all year.
