As a Lead Finance and Research Analyst at the office of the Defense and Air Attaché at the Embassy of Brazil, I am responsible for developing and executing our office’s annual budget and for developing in-depth reports based on strategic and focused research. I work with and present this information to leaders of the executive branch of the Brazillian and U.S. governments.
I find my work engaging because I work on a variety of fields, which creates a dynamic environment where I get to expand my views and experiences. I am constantly educating myself and learning something new.
I graduated from George Mason with a bachelor’s degree in global affairs and a minor in business. Both disciplines shaped me into an educated and prepared professional. I am grateful to the many dedicated faculty members who had the patience to help me along the way by overcoming language and cultural barriers.
Know what makes you happy and fight for it. Things were not easy for me and I am sure they are not easy for most people. But only the ones who fight get to win.
