Self-Reflection Through A Journal Entry…

Camila Diaz - Brazil


May 5, 2015

During Pre-Departure there’s a lot oftalk about how one will come back a new person- how this experience transforms. But I didn’t feel that would happen to me.

So I dedicated time to wonder what would make me come back differently.

I’m in Brasil. Either I learn how to samba or I learn to play futebol.

Getting here, my main objective was to learn Samba. I had always dedicated myself to dance, therefore,naturally my focus was on that. Yet after my first month here, I changed my mind since Samba is more culturally common in the Northeast.

And then the lightbulb lit up….

I’m in Brasil and I suck at the majority of sports.

Why don’t I come back a soccer expert?

How great is it to say:

Yeah
