Felipe wants people to know that despite his friendly and extroverted personality, he is a deep thinker who enjoys spending time with himself for some quiet introspection. He is passionate about inequality of all kinds– especially regarding gender and financial privilege. When he lived in São Paulo, he volunteered for many Christmas and clothing drives, donating gifts to needy children and helping the homeless population get warm clothes and shelter during the harsh winter months.
Though Felipe grew up in a city, his great love is the outdoors. He is a big fan of hiking and enjoys exploring all the natural wonders in his new home-state of Georgia. He is also an avid reader; his recent favorite book is Uma Historia do Samba: As Origens, by Liro Neto, which is all about the political and cultural implications of Samba music in early 20th century Brazil. On a
Saturday afternoon, you can find Felipe combining his two favorite pastimes: reading outdoors.
Felipe’s fiancee is currently in Brazil and will join him in the US next year. They got engaged right before he left for the States, during a romantic vacation in Mexico. She has plans to come
to study English and business too. Coincidentally, she works also in the supply chain area, but for a Brazilian investment bank within Supply Chain Finance.
