Why I’m in Brazil (part 2)

Hello extro & introverts! (Tradução embaixo)

I just finished watching a TED talk by Susan Cain, whose book ‘Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking‘ I’ve read (but not quite finished yet, as it’s a difficult book for me to read). I thought it would be interesting, and maybe more so, important, to highlight to both introverts and extroverts the strengths of introverts, what they go through, and how it influenced my decision to move to Brazil Continue reading “Why I’m in Brazil (part 2)”
