My name is Jessica Brasil Skroch – and yes, I’m from Brazil. I was born in Curitiba, south of the country, but I really wanted to be born in a warm place with beaches, forró and samba. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been enchanted by people and their stories. To show the world all this beauty of the diversity of life, I communicate sometimes through journalism, sometimes through art. And every time I manage to put the two together, my heart smiles. Freelance journalist, today I’m a trainee at the newspaper Estadão. I enjoy writing (especially long) texts on gender, diversity, culture and human rights.
