“My time in Brazil was one of the most eye opening experiences of my life. I think that I grew more during this time than any other 6 month period. It gave me perspective on my own life, as well as perspective of the world around me.”, Chris Penksa, WVC student“Being in Brazil for the past four months has been an incredibly enjoyable and enriching experience. My enrollment in UNIFEI and residence in the student “republicas” have allowed me to enter into the educational experience of another culture and country. I have also been involved in a number of other activities such as training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, giving English classes a few days a week and assisting UNIFEI students and other foreigners in a non-profit based internship. Being involved in these activities has made the experience even more worthwhile as I have been allowed a variety of opportunities to become involved with many wonderful people on different levels.
