I am currently a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, my major is computer science with a certificate in digital studies. I love our mascot Bucky Badger, as you can see from the picture.
I am involved in student organizations, and have a position as the associate director of event planning for WUD Global Connections Committee, an organization focused on global issues and different cultures. I plan awesome events on world cultures, you should check them out.
Also, I work at the campus Department of Information Technology (Do-It) Help Desk and I resolve IT problems and offer support on software for our students, professors, and staff.
Part of the reason why I chose computer science is becuase technology is my passion. I have taken a course in web design a few years ago, and that was my first connection with programming and the wonders of technology. Since then, I have learnt many programming languages and created owesome things. You can check them out on my projects page.
I am from Rio de Janeiro, the marvelous city, but I have lived 11 years in Manaus, a city located in the middle of the Amazon rainforest, in northern Brazil. My family now lives in São Paulo, the largest city in southern hemisphere, and I visit them during the summer (or winter, if you are in Brazil).
This picutre was not taken in any of those cities, though. I was in Aparados da Serra National Park in the state of Rio Grande do Sul (the southernmost state of Brazil). It was during the winter, but as you can see, Brazil is quite warm.
I would say what I miss from home is definitelly the food. If you never heard about brigadeiro, pão de queijo, farofa, or cocada, you don't know what you are missing.
