Calla Sneller is an Ohio State alumna and an English Teaching Assistant with the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, who spent two years teaching in Brazil. 

During my two years living and working in Brazil, I relished the opportunity to not only develop professionally but personally as well. I started my journey in Uberaba, Minas Gerais, where I worked as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) at the federal university. Uberaba is a small city in the heart of rural Brazil. While there, I took advantage of the wonderful churrasco, warm and welcoming people and the opportunity to make an impact in my community and with my students.
