Bio
Hi! Olá! Hola! Hej! Salut! Hallo! Namaste!

My name´s Adriana, I was born in Rio de Janeiro but currently live in São Paulo, Brazil.

As for Education, I hold a MBA in Business Administration by Fundação Getúlio Vargas and a B.A. in Letters (Portuguese, English and Literatures).

In order to broaden my horizons, I´ve lived in Denmark and Ireland for a couple of years, while attending the following courses:

- Current Affairs, Applied and Advanced Communications, Drama, African Studies, World and English Literatures, Gender and Development - International People's College, Denmark, 2000.

- Irish Studies - University College Dublin, Ireland, 2000.

Currently working in the Foreign Trade (Import/Export) area, I also have Business, Shipping, Logistics, international/Commercial Law and Foundry/Automotive Industry fields as a must, besides a 12-year experience as an English/Spanish teacher.

I also hold a Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English and have done several consecutive translation jobs in events such as:

- Kobe Delegates Visit / World Health Organization to Rio de Janeiro (FAA, UNIRIO, Instituto Iguaçu / Fundação Mudes / CEIVAP / Prefeitura Municipal de Valença);

- Vascular Medicine International Seminar Seminário Internacional de Medicina Vascular, FAA, Valença –RJ;

- EGGYS - Ecumenical Global Gathering For Youth Students (volunteer work), Valença and Mendes – RJ.

I also love Anglo-Irish and Brazilian literatures, dancing (samba, salsa, belly-dance, jazz), trekking and eco-tours around Brazil.

Hope you enjoy my profile and feel free to contacting me at any time!
