I was born and raised in Brazil, and have always loved traveling and getting to know new places. This passion of mine led me to live for a while in England when I was still a teenager, to spend time learning Italian in Milan, to take an academic English language course at Columbia University, and it took me to India to volunteer in a Women Empowerment Program in 2016.
Since I have always considered myself a storyteller, I got my bachelor’s degree in social communication at PUC Minas, in Brazil. While doing my undergrad in my hometown, I reported on local issues as well as major ones, such as the national microcephaly outbreak and the fight for decent housing. some Brazilians face.
I'm currently living in Washington D.C. while doing my capstone as a reporter for Cronkite News in order to get my graduate degree at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. So far I have developed an interest for investigative journalism and would love to report on long-form stories at a respectable media outlet in the near future.
I speak Italian because of my family heritage, and have reported in Portuguese, English and Spanish. Here I show some of my most recent work.
