Athlete of the Brazilian Parasurfing Team. ISA ParaSurfing Classification ID 77. At the first, apart from our cultural challenges, I love this sport and I love surfing. Because I don’t have support or sponsorship and because of the various difficulties in our country related to urban mobility (displacement), the equipment and the cost involved in practicing the sport, I surf less than I would like. But I fight within everithing I can to keep the sport active. I’m also a vegan and an activist at the Social-environmental NGO Route Institute. I work and study at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC). I have a degree in International Relations; post graduate degree in Administration, Public Management and Social Policies; master in Urbanism, History and Archtecture. Research focus on urbanism environment, access watercourses and adapted water sports and beach acessibility. I am a researcher at the UFSC Ecoando Sustentabilidade Program and researcher at the Interdisciplinary Surf & Sustainability Research Group (SandS/Ufsc) (https://sands.ufsc.br/). I work as an insider researcher (self-ethnographic method and action research). Finally, I really love surfing and study subjects related to the topic. And the three tings I most want today are: surf more to qualify my surf and get a scholarship to do a doctorate abroad, preferably in an English-speaking country to improve my language skills.
