Born in Brazil and raised in North Carolina, I am especially passionate for stories about change and new beginnings. My roots as a Brazilian-American woman have made me who I am, and with photography, I want to help others identify with their origins in an effort to shape their future. My goal is to make people feel heard and to truly understand the complexity of their stories, something the world desperately needs but often goes without. I am currently a fourth-year photojournalism student at Ohio University with an expected graduation date of May 2022.
