MUSIC

I studied classical singing in Vienna for three years, and I still sing as an amateur opera and Lieder singer, so I know a lot about classical music, instruments, techniques etc. I can outline translations for Yamaha's musical instruments.


INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS AND POLITICS

I started on October 14th 2019 my graduate studies in International Relations at Faculdade IBMEC SP. Before that I made a one-year preparation in the field of international relations/diplomacy.


SPIRITISM, SPIRITUALITY AND CHRISTIANITY

I am a Christian, I did catechesis and confirmation in the Catholic Church and I was a teacher of confirmation for a few years. I am also a student and speaker of the spiritist works of Allan Kardec. I have translated a book by Allan Kardec (check below) from French to English, I made translations for The Bible Project, I wrote some spiritist books (check below) and I participate in the international spiritist society. I actively study the teachings of Jesus Christ and am interested in other types of spirituality.
