Country of origin: Brazil
Home University: Universidade Federal de Itajuba (Brazil)
Major at Clemson: Computer Engineering     
When you studied at Clemson: Full year 2012

Why did you choose to come to Clemson?
To be honest, I didn’t know any American universities and I did not have the chance to choose. I am here under a government program and the university was chosen for me based on my profile. If I had the opportunity though, I would have chosen Clemson over others I heard specifically for the small town and lovely people.

What's your favorite Clemson memory?
The University itself. I loved how things are organized and everything works.

What types of on-campus activities (student organizations, research, jobs) are/were you involved in?
Other than regular classes I am currently involved in an internship program with the Real-Time Power and Intelligence Systems Laboratory working with Neural Networks.

What is your favorite place on/near campus?
Harcombe dining hall. It is pretty much everything I always dreamed of seeing when it comes to a dining hall. I really like Fike Recreation Center as well.
