Interests in Engineering and the Environment[edit]

The most interesting fact about engineers is the skills that they acquire during their studies. An engineer is created to solve problems, to promote developing, and be supportive about the people welfare. They are always looking for an alternative, most of them very creative, methods for some problems solutions. This is the awesome part of engineer I most enjoy.

Aditional Experience[edit]

I worked in AIESEC Presidente Prudente for six months before the beginning of my exchange program, where I acquired my first experience about how an enterprise works. There I could learn deeply its values and ideas, besides to promote social volunteer exchange in order to impact more lives around the world.
