About Me

CURRENT MISSION

melhorar português do Brasil...

ABOUT ME

Multi-personality ;) I can be different depending on mood, circumstances, people and places around. As a resume, I can say that I like to learn new things every time (I am curious), have fun (I am funny when I wanna be) and appreciate intelligent people with wide interests (I am smart). :) All other aspects you will know when you meet me.

And I also love travelling, deep conversations, Japan, Italy, Brazil, cycling and dogs :) !

P.S. learning Brazilian Portuguese now. Always happy to practice it with native speakers or anyone who speaks it as a second language.

PHILOSOPHY

Fortune favors the brave.

warau mon ni fuku kitaru (Japanese) The good luck comes to the gates where you can hear laugh

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Snorkling in the Red Sea in Egypt was amazing.

Climbing the Avacha volcano in Kamchatka was good.

Travelling on my own for 7 months in Latin America in 2014 was a very special experience. In my "inner time" it equals to 3-4 years at least. If you want to live an intense life - go travelling!
