Born in Brazil, raised in California. I grew up in the suburban, agricultural, exploding city of Fresno. I don't fit in the boxes, and after struggling to identify with any one thing for most of my life, I have reached a continuing journey of self love and acceptance. I love being unique and being myself! I have a Bachelor's degree in Peace and Justice Studies from Tufts University in Boston, MA. I work as an educator at an outdoor school in the mountains of California, teaching peace, conflict resolution, assertiveness, interconnectedness, respect, community, individuality and many other values and skills. I am a free spirit, an adventurer, an open soul. I trust my gut and follow my heart. I believe there is more good than evil, but there's a lot of evil out there and I'm trying to make a change, love a hurt person, be the revolution. My dream is to be happy and make others happy. My goal in life is to go into experimental education, but right now I am enjoying working seasonal jobs and traveling as much as possible. I love dancing, singing, playing with animals, hiking, sleeping under the stars, swimming, theater, cooking, and being a part of a community. I am a very friendly and open person, and I love meeting people from all backgrounds. To me, it doesn't matter where you're from, what language you speak or how much money you have, it matters what you have in your heart. I try to spread peace and positivity by loving and helping others!
I would love to learn more about organic farming, permaculture, taking care of animals, holistic healing, and how to start your own enterprise. As I travel, I want to live in as many communities as possible and learn as much as I can about the vegan/whole food lifestyle, living sustainably, healing myself with natural remedies, and what it's like to live and work in community. I am currently figuring out what the foods are that my body and soul like/don't like. For the most part I don't eat meat or dairy, and stay away from gluten, sugar, and processed food/drinks.

I have experience working maintenance on a campsite, and can clean and fix many things. I have helped on construction projects, as long as I'm not the one in charge I can assist in any way.
