I am a senior Modern Languages student at the University of São Paulo, the #1 university in Brazil (according to Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2020). I'm majoring in Portuguese and Spanish and I also have a high degree of English proficiency, holding a C1-level TOEFL ITP certificate. My knowledge of Spanish comes from over 5 years of studying the language at university and a six-month exchange programme at the University of the Balearic Islands, in Spain, where I took an English to Spanish literary translation subject, besides other language-related modules.

I have one year of experience as a Proofreading Intern at an ISO 9001 certified language service provider in Brazil, where I was responsible for quality-checking translations for multinational clients and assisting with translation-related enquiries, ensuring customer satisfaction. Working there, I edited translations from different fields, ranging from journalism and marketing to legal, financial, and tech/engineering, which made me familiar with terminology used in different areas of knowledge and industries.

I am a volunteer translator at Global Voices, where I translate news articles about people whose voices and experiences are rarely seen in mainstream media. You can see my published translations here:

Since early 2019 I also volunteer as an iFriend (international student mentor) at USP, helping incoming international students before and after their arrival in São Paulo.
