Hi there! Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
I was born in Brazil, but have lived in the United States for more than ten years now. Currently a graduate student in the field of Mathematics, I have always enjoyed learning about science and engineering, and how things work. This passion for the sciences is due to the strong support and help I received from my grandfather over my formative years. My goal is to eventually become a professor and have the opportunity to influence the academic lives of others, as my professors have done for me. In my spare time, I like to volunteer and tutor other students, but I also enjoy playing soccer, listening to Bossa Nova music, and playing the guitar. I dream of one day returning to Brazil, and potentially make a difference to the current education scenario there. I hope other students there will have the opportunities I have had in my life.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. Always glad to help!
