What's your favorite thing about Brazil?

I adore Brazilian music (Carioca Funk, Samba, Bossa Nova... just to name a few). I'm in love with Brazil's culture, diversity and historic roots. Most of all I love the language. The language is something that I've always wanted to learn since high school.

Have you ever been to Brazil? Where?

I have never been to Brazil, but one of my main motivators is to play in the Rio 2016 Olympics for Handball, and I'd love to have mastered more than 75% fluency in Portuguese, as well as be able to enjoy the amazing things Brazil has to offer. :-)

How much Portuguese do you speak?

I am currently at the beginners stage of Portuguese, teaching myself how to read speak and write. I understand fairly a large amount of the language when spoken to, and can answer back with ease.


I am a: chocolate chip cookie lover, entertainer, afterschool teacher, PR / advertising professional, amatuer olympic handball player, lover of languages & much more. A Jack-Of-All-Trades that wants to expand my network & connect w/ amazing people.
