What does life as a woman or girl look like in your country/city/town/village? Any issues/challenges/milestones?  

In Brazil, is not very easy to be a woman! Sometimes, I am walking with my dog in the sunlight and some men call me names. This kind of thing also happens inside our homes. My family said that my brother could kiss as many girls as he wishes but I could only kiss one boy and I should be older than 18. In schools is where it happens the most. Once a boy tried to push my BFF in the face, another day, another boy punched me in the face FOR NO REASON!


What would you like the world to know about YOU? What life experience, challenge or achievement do you want to share?

I want to share that I've helped my family and friends to become more open minded. Whenever I see someone having prejudice, I say something!

What are you most passionate about and what are you doing with that passion? 

I love Drama! I’m studying a lot about it because I want to work with something about it.


How have the women and girls around you helped you to get to where you are today?  

I try to get close to strong women so that we can get stronger together. And we help each other to get each time stronger.

Complete this sentence: "To be a girl or woman today, is to be..."

To be a girl or woman today, is to be strong, yourself and most importantly, it is to be beautiful just the way you are.
