Tanurah is passionate about nature, music, and travel. During high school, she participated in different activities around the community to help those around her as well as organizations that strived to provide for those in need. Her goals for the year are to embrace the culture around her as she lives in Brazil, gather new experiences, and another place to call home. She also hopes to learn Portuguese and develop a bond with her host family as she sees life from a whole new perspective. Her favorite quote is "The world is too big to stay in one place and life is too short to do just one thing".
