I am the best candidate for WGI because of my diverse cultural background and how I do approach design because of it. I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, lived nine years in Santiago, Chile, three years in New York, and I have been living the last two years in San Francisco. I left Brazil with 17 years old, working on theater and since then I have experienced many different worlds, from the stage to the back stage and the a pen, a notebook, and a computer. One of the most important things I have learned is the skillset of adaptation, understanding culture beyond language or form. Understanding mainly how to articulate and dialogue our ideas and point of views with the other, and from that learn and transform ours.
