Tell us a little about you(your background and how was it like)?
I’m 17 and Brazilian. I have plans to go to college and hopefully one day become an orthopedic surgeon. I come from a rough environment where people end up in a cell or a grave, but luckily for me, I’ve chosen to stay away from all that negativity, and shoot for the stars, and one day it will all pay off.
What do you value most from your country?
I value my family, friends and everyone that made me the person I am. I value the culture, the food, and the music, because they left a significant impact on me.
Who influences you to go after your goals?
Me, myself and I. My biggest fear is being unsuccessful, and that fear has driven me to accomplish a lot.
What advice can you give a teen about going through hardships?
Life isn’t always sunshine and butterflies, everyone has their rainy days but whatever you are going through, always stay positive, because why would you give up today, if tomorrow you could win?
If you and only three wish to change your family or the world’s life what would they be?
If I had three wishes I wouldn’t change anything in my family, being imperfect is just what I need, our flaws make us closer. But I would change things in the world. Number one, I would save the earth from global warming. Number 2, I would make traveling free, and lastly I would cure everyone of every disease known to mankind.
