Kyle is an undergraduate student at Ohio State. He participated in the Higher Education in Brazil study abroad program organized by the College of Education and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion that was in Salvador, Brazil last March.

Brazil was such a life-changing experience for me. Let me first start by saying that having the opportunity to have been selected for this trip was such a blessing and I am immensely grateful to have had this experience.

My name is Marcia Mota Macedo and I graduated in languages. I teach Portuguese as a foreign language for over 10 years, and for four years, I host a YouTube channel, where I teach Portuguese to speakers of other languages.

At the same time, I became familiar with the Ohio State Department of Hispanic Linguistics and saw the work being done by professors and graduate students in this area of the university.

Studying abroad was a once in a lifetime opportunity that I would recommend to anyone! You may never have another opportunity to live and learn abroad like you will during your college years.
