Support Gina's Study Abroad Trip to Brazil
Organized by: Gina Rivera
As a Latin American studies major, I am required to study Portuguese to fulfill my language requirment. During my last year at UCLA I have been given the opportunity to study Portuguese in Brazil (Salvador, Bahia). In equal importance, I will be living with a host family to gain the best and most authentic experience of the people, culture and communities there.
Being the first person to graduate college in my immediate family this is bigger than traveling. I have the opportunity to learn at an international university, gain a first-hand experience of life in Brazil and meet new people.
Funds will support my education, travel and living expenses. This experience will assist my goal of receiving my undergrad in Latin American Studies and supporting my opportunity to further my education on an international level.
Any support is greatly appreciated and I thank you all in advance.
I will include picutures and short narratives during my time in Brazil to keep you all updated on my studies and communal experiences.
If you have any questions or comments feel free to email me.
