About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

Born in São Paulo, Brazil, my first big journey was at the age of 16, when I moved to Costa Rica, where I graduated from High School.

Then I came back to Brazil, finished my apprenticeship in Tourism Management and started working for a large hotel chain.

My job allowed me to travel a lot, and the most memorable one was working in Ciudad de Mexico for three weeks. Meanwhile traveling and working, I graduated in Event Management in Brazil. Then I got a scholarship to take a Bachelor in Business Administration in The Netherlands, from which I recently graduated.

During my studies, I got the opportunity to work in Berlin, a city that I completely fell in love with.

Right now I am back in my hometown São Paulo and I am looking forward to be able to show my city to YOU!

PHILOSOPHY

"Mesmo assim, apesar de tudo, viajar é a verdadeira grande paixão da minha vida. Sempre senti, desde que tinha 16 anos e fui à Costa Rica com o dinheiro que juntei cuidando de crianças, que viajar compensa qualquer custo ou sacrifício."

Interests

I am interested in helping people, in traveling to different places, in dancing until the sunrise (with friends at a bonfire on the beach), in languages, in airports, in fleamarket, in coffee, interested in writing, in photography, in yoga, in sharing hugs, in reading and in the continuos self-improvement.
