It has been more than one month since I arrived in “America”, so I think it is time to tell how it has been for me so far. There have have been some great…
Hey! I am a first-year international student from Sao Carlos, Sao Paulo, Brazil, and am yet to find a non-native speaker of Portuguese who can say my name correctly.
I plan to major in Computer Engineering and Physics and also consider minoring in Music, Philosophy or Economics. I consider myself nerd not in the way that I repeatedly watch Star Trek but in the sense that I naturally smile when the clock indicates 3:14 or when a sign indicates 5, 12 and 13 miles.
Besides studying for the unusual amount of credits I am taking, I currently play violin in the Tufts Symphony Orchestra and the Tufts Chamber Orchestra. I also am going to work in the dining services and as a Portuguese-language tutor.
And yeah, the Jumbo in my t-shirt is wearing glasses!
