Brazil: Semester Exchange Programs

Follow us online


Zoila Guachichulca Going to Brazil was one of the greatest experiences, and something that I will never forget. I have fallen in love with the Brazilian culture and its language. The Brazilian community was welcoming and willing to help me with anything I needed. I met a lot of great people who helped me develop strategies to develop my research project on social programs and accomplish it. Overall, I have improved my Portuguese and have learned new skills from the students I have interviewed. I have challenged myself in many ways and have learned to be patient. I have learned a phrase that will help me on my future success – "Quem tem boca vai a Roma" ("Who has a mouth goes to Rome"), meaning that if you go out and ask for help with what you need, you will go further to achieve your goal. Now, my interests are to return to Brazil to do my Masters Degree in something related to political economy of development (global policy or public affairs).
