What attracts you to, or what is your connection to Brasil?

I love everything about the culture and language. The first time I went there was on a surfing trip to Itacare and then I moved to Salvador where I studied and volunteered in an orphanato tambem. I have also visited Rio and Sao Paulo. I like the spirit of the Brazilian people:)

What is your level of portuguese?

I'm not sure. At was point I was fluent but I have lost SO much. I can write and read at a higher level than I can speak right now but I think it will come back fast with some practice

Why would you like to join this meetup?

Yes! I am a single mom with an 18 month old and don't have much help with her, but if you have any gatherings that are kid friendly I would really love to come and maybe occasionally I will be able to come alone too.


Hi my name is Cypress and I am from CA but lived in Brasil for two years in 2006-2008. I feel like I am forgetting Portuguese and would love to have some new friends to practice with!
