About me:

I moved to Canada when I was nine years old, from Brazil. The differences between these two countries are very prominent, and I think that's one of the reasons why I'm so interested in learning new languages and learning about different cultures. I'm also really fascinated by photography and shorts films, mainly social experiments.

In my free time, I like to spend time outside, whether it's swimming, hiking or going on a picnic. I really enjoy talking to people, topics can vary from their favourite colour to their opinions on recent events.

One thing that is really important to me is my faith. I am Christian. I feel like people often associate Christianism with being judgemental. However, I never want anyone to feel pre-judged around me. I want people to feel the most comfortable around me, like they did with Jesus.

As if sexual assault victims weren’t silenced enough, the White House has reportedly removed their sexual assault reports “published in 2014 under the Obama administration” from the White House’s website.

Racism is often talked about using the past tense, however, in the past few years, this horrific ideology has resurfaced and is now being mentioned regularly in the news. In fact, less than a month ago, hundreds of right-wing protestors marched the streets of Charlottesville, in order, to protest the removal of Robert's E. Lee statue. For those who do not know, Robert E.
