About Me


meet people, have fun, discover the world, learn and teach.


I change a lot, but I really love arts in general and meeting people. I teach Portuguese for foreign, so I make my life talking to people from different places and I love it!!! I'm very open minded and that's what I appreciate on people, besides of creativity and the ability to reinvent themselves.


Try to see the bright side of everything and be patient.
