  • Description


    Hi, my name is Chanice, I am 26 years old, bachelor in Portuguese Literature and Master in Cinema and Television. Now I am studying for my PhD in Philosophy of Language while I work as Audiovisual Producer.
    I just moved back to Brazil after completing my Masters in London and working for a bit in Abu Dhabi! I live now in a flat in the heart of São Paulo and 3 of my best friends are also my neighbors, so if you stay here you will meet a whole crowd of young artists trying to make it in the big city. I live just 7 minutes from the closest subway station and 1 minute from a main road with lots of buses' lines to chose from. In the past, I was a host in WorkAway when I was living in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro, and I made lasting friendships from this experience. I would like to repeat the experience now that I live in São Paulo.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have hosted travelers through workaway many times in the past: i will never let you leave my place without cooking you some typical brazilian dishes first and telling you all about the greatest brazilian art there is to know. i am super patriotic, i know everything about not only brazilian, but latin american history and i like talking about our politics and our history of colonisation.
    I am both an artist and an academic, so i know the political connection between our music/film/literature and our dictatorship period... Also, I can answer all your doubts about how come Bolsonaro became our president (i know you will have some questions lol)

    I want native speakers to teach me their language! French, Italian, German, Swedish, Russian would be a priority, but any language (besides English) will do for me! Only 2 hours of teaching per day. Sometimes I have pets (dogs) around so if you happen to be here while I have them, I also would like you to take them for a walk once or twice a day. If you only speak english, but happens to be a filmmaker, you can make a project proposal: if we can make a movie together while you are here, you will also be welcomed to stay!

    I am a graduated linguist so I learn languages super super super fast (really) so you actually need to have a profound knowledge of your language grammar in order to be accepted.
