A curiosity: When I was little, I used to cough when people smoked near me. I wanted them to feel bad about smoking.

Why Cásper?: During high school, part of me thought that the right choice was journalism. So I researched and got to know Cásper. However, there was a big part of me that wanted to study chemistry, and so I did it for a year before knowing that it wasn’t meant for me. I started to think again about  journalism and Cásper. But then, I discovered Public Relations (PR) and got the feeling that I could fall in love with it. And Cásper was always part of the plan.

What’s the best thing about your major?: The way a PR is instructed to think about integrated communication. This professional must think about the "capitalist objectives" while thinking and acting according to what is human, sustainable and ethical.

Seeing the number of votes, the number of people who believed in us: that was amazing!

“Mais Vozes” at Cásper Líbero: I believe we can turn CAVH into an institution that truly represents student. We are going to promote events, manage  with our conversation circles, fighting in many different ways and for various causeour communication with other institution of the university. Whether they are athletes, members of political groups, movie lovers, theater lovers, drum lovers, we believe that everyone is a bit of everything.

Where do you see yourself in 2026?: Married to someone who is my best friend and planning on having my first baby. Perhaps here in São Paulo, but Australia would not hurt. But, above all: happy and fulfilled.

What’s your biggest dream?: My grandfather passed away in September of 2015. As hard as it was, his death was ... “light”. He really was proud of the life he built.

Describe CAVH in one word: Satisfaction.

How was the election process?: It was crazy! We tried presenting elections to as many people as we could, so we worked really hard, posting new things every day at Facebook, chatting with friends... It's funny to me that we are normal students who were suddenly known by a crowd, that knew our names and believed in us.

“Mais Vozes” at Cásper Líbero: We want to change the CAVH's appearence so it stops being "boring" as lots of students claim it to be.

Where do you see yourself in 2026?: This question is always so hard for me! But I think what I want is summed up in one word: peace. I want to live in a quiet place with a job that I like.

“Mais Vozes” at Cásper Líbero: The main goal for me is the social projects! We have other plans, but I am very happy to be part of a group that really cares about the fact that Cásper does not invest much in that. I hope we can engage students to take a part in social acts.
