Jojo is very passionate about martial arts, specifically Thai Kickboxing and Karate. She has been teaching karate for 6 years now in Beijing, China, where she has lived with her family for 7 years. She was also proudly co-captain of her rugby team during her senior year. Travelling has become a large part of Jojo's life after moving to China, and her love of travel is what initially attracted her to the Global Citizen Year program. She hopes to actively help her community in Brazil, as well as get the most out of this incredible experience.
