Home country: Brazil

As an engineering student, I was able to work with cool equipment such as 3D printers, drones, drafting software etc. This was a unique experience for me and I thoroughly enjoyed my classes because they were never dull.

I've made so many new friends from so many countries, who I'm going to visit in the following years.
