Cristiane, Brazil – Level 1


I love studying and because of this I realized amazing things that I thought were impossible.

I was born in a very poor family in Brazil, however, I have always loved to study. Due to my love for reading and maths, I realized dreams that would not have been possible for a poor child like me.

I went to university and I graduated in Engineering. Then I found a job as a teacher. I traveled to Canada last year, an amazing dream came true! I am doing my doctorate at this moment, and I am going to live in Tokyo next year because I won a scholarship. Part of my doctorate will be spent at the University of Tokyo.

I am really happy with this! I think that more poor children could realize their dreams if they have more opportunity to study like me.
