Veni, vidi, vici | And now? | E agora?

Hello folks! (em português embaixo)

I’m happy to announce that I recently did my Master’s defence here at Universidade Federal de Viçosa! If I’ll be honest, it feels unreal, because remember that I started my Master’s degree in a language I had never spoken before!
