Icons & I

I was born in Nova Lima, Minas Gerais, Brazil. My parents were both born in Belo Horizonte, the capital of my state (Minas Gerais) and only a few minutes away from Nova Lima. I am an only child and live with my mother and father. My favourite hobbies are painting, fashion art and watching YouTube videos! My parents & I moved to New Zealand in 2015 to start a new life!

The icons above represent parts of my life or ancestry. The Portuguese flag, the Eiffel Tower, the Big Ben and the indigenous icon all represent parts of my ancestry and heritage. The chef and the suitcase icons represent things my family likes doing together: cooking and travelling. The Statue of Liberty icon represents New York City which is my favourite place in the world and one of my favourite places to travel to! Other places I love are Paris and London (depicted by the Eiffel Tower and Big Ben Icons). Finally, the mountain & lake/river icon represents where I was born: Minas Gerais which is known for its largely mountainous terrain, agriculture, historical cities and mining industry. back
