Bio. I’m a 4th year Cape Verdean student, studying International Chinese Education in Macao since August 2016. Language is my passion, and I want to learn as many languages as I can, because for me learning a new language not only widens your knowledge about other cultures, but it’s also a universal and cultural hug it brings humanity closer, it helps us grow, it is like opening a window for mutual learning. I’m a poetry lover, I write my own poetry and I hope one day I can launch my own book.
My motto is “Be a bridge not to separate but to connect nations and its people”.
