Where in the World Challenge: Brazil

#24 BRAZIL: Oh I have been waiting for this one! For those of you who do not know I will share a little of my history with this Country. My parents are very American, they both come for Minneapolis, MN, but in their 20's they starting doing volunteer work abroad. I was born in Italy & at the age of 5 moved to Brazil. In total I've spent about 15-16 years in Brazil, I refer to it as my hometown as it is a huge part of who I am today. The fact that I was not born there, do not have Brazilian parents, do not have a passport or even a "green card" in Brazil is not the point, I am & will always be part American & part Brazilian!

For today I designed, to the best of my abilities, my interpretation of the love I have for this country...my Brazilian heartbeat!


  1. I have to admit, I teared up a little be reading the post, I have never met someone that felt that way about my country! I love the nails, looks incredible ♥

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I really love Brasil & miss it terribly. I've been away for many years & hope to travel back there soon, just haven't found the time or the money to do so. I'm glad you like my design, a friend of mine wrote a song called "Sou Brasileiro de Coracao" so those were the words running through my head when I thought of my design.
