What do you think defines you?There are “three C’s” that turned me into what I am today. Cláudia is the first one, that is my mother. She is my biggest inspiration, because she is kind a mix of Clarice Lispector e Cássia Eller. Lispector is my favorite writer, because she is encompasses the ideia of a sensible women by her writing style, but she actually is such a strong person. My mother is like this, sometimes. And Cássia Eller, in contrast to Clarice, is shy in person, but turns herself into a lion at stage, a sensation of explosion for the audience. She can’t control. These two women from artistic universe made everything to express themselves. That is what makes me feel how I feel everyday. And, of course, books. By now I’m Reading “Memórias de Minhas Putas Tristes” by Gabriel Gárcia Márquez and I’m in love for it! His literature… He captures small things and turn then into a huge story, that’s what keeps tucked in the pages until the end.

Still talking about literature, you write some poetical texts. How did you start it?I always liked to write, since I was a little girl. I started it, but I didn’t have my own style. It was cute, but it wasn’t the way I wanted to say those things. When I started to have classes with Welington, at sophomore year, something happened to me and that is why he is my biggest admiration at Cásper. His classroom made me reflect, he was able to explore something on me that made me write really deep texts. I know that now I can write and make other people identify with my story, because it is kind of universal. Maybe the person only couldn’t express it the way I did, but it has a connection for sure. Words shouldn’t be wind carried, they need to make sense. They are words you “do”, not only write or write. It has to be with your attitudes.

So, you only could improve your writing here at Cásper. Why did you choose to study here?,This is funny story. I have a friend at Objetivo that is called Gabriel his dream was to study at Cásper and mine was to study at USP. Through our path, we changed everything. He was upset because he was at USP and I because I was here. I arrived at Cásper thinking that if eveybody says it is the best comunication college of Latin America it had to be something good. So at my freshman year I felt in love for here. For the environment, the professors, the people I met. Besides that, I think Cásper is synonim for opportunities, because you can do a lot of practical work in here.

You have worked at Núcleo Editorial and now you are a TV Gazeta intern. How is it going?Working with magazines at Núcleo Editorial made me increase and develop my hability with words. I didn’t know I could write this type of text. Even if we had almost one month to do it, it needed a huge focus, because you need to be carefull with what you write. It’s such a serious job and I learned a lot. Besides, hardnews is a bit tough for me, because it is stressing. You need a lot of self control and I realized that I didn’t have it. Last week, for example, I wanted time to pass faster, but this is something I never want, because I am afraid of it. Now I deal with journalism big guys and I am not treated as an intern. It is being tough, but a really nice experience. I’m learning to be more faster and dinamic, for example.

And now what would it be your dream job?I don’t think I can fit in an especific editorial line. Maybe I see myself working at CULT magazine, because the texts allow you to put a cultural side. Most text aren’t factual, they are timeless. You can read it one year after it has been published and still make sense. Besides this one, I think I will need to create a project for myself with some people that I trust.

By now, what was your favorite journalistic work?Porn cinema.  During our junior year, we went to three porn cinemas at São Paulo’s Downtown area. We have arrived with an impression that was vanishing while time passed. My reasearch was interesting, because women are advised not to enter there alone and I went prentending to be a friend’s girlfriend. We started to realize that the place wasn’t like all the reports we heard. I was proud to desconstruct this pattern. I get proud everytime I go somewhere, research, interview – what I love, because talking is one of my biggest passions – and then bring it all together to other people. I was proud because they where able to know it by me and my talks.
