After working for five years as an English teacher in Brazil, I have decided to take on a new role and expand my horizons, that is, become a professional translator. As a translator I can reach out people in different parts of the world and bridge different cultures at the same time, that is a unique experience!
Teaching English has considerably helped me develop many skills and get to know various cultural aspects from different societies and peoples, yet the most important thing is that I've learned to see the world from a new and fresh perspective. I'm looking forward to expanding my horizons and bringing many Global Voices to light.
