Hi guys! I’m Beatriz, or Bia. I’m a Paulista from Brazil currently based in New York studying journalism at Hofstra University. I consider myself to have a pilgrim’s spirit – I can’t really stay in one place for too long. My next adventure will be held in Barcelona, Spain! I promise to keep you updated on my amazing discoveries through Europe ;D

I edited this video for my Spanish class and I wanted to share with you all (:

I'm going to make an analogy, and I hope by the end of my explanation you will understand what I'm trying to share with you, and the analogy is that -- immersing one's self in a new culture is comparable to learning how to walk.
