Brazil changed my life...

During the XXVII South American Championship for club teams in Cochabamba, Bolivia, the President of Macae Sports, a youth volleyball club just outside of Rio di Janeiro, invited me to join the club's U17 (infanto-juvenil) and U20 (juvenil) teams.

At the Championship, Macae's team got second place after losing the final match against the other Brazilian team of the tournament, Rexona.

The following newspaper articles summarise my experience in Brazil: An experience that changed my life forever.
