#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!
