Mauro comes from a rural town called Palmichal in Costa Rica. During this upcoming year, he wants to give back to the community, a little bit of all the opportunities and experiences that he has received in life. In Brazil, he wants to help people to achieve their goals and dreams, but more than that he wants to share happiness with them. This as a result of all the inspiration taken from his grandfather, a man who until the last day was making everything with happiness and love. Mauro will study sustainable business at College of the Atlantic. One of his biggest motivations is to build a better and more sustainable world for future generations.
