What is something interesting that people may not know about you?
I speak four languages. I grew up in a bilingual country and household. In Paraguay we have two official languages, Spanish and Guaraní, which is the language of our native indigenous people. I also speak Portuguese because my mother is Brazilian. And finally, I speak English that I learned through middle and high school.

What are you hoping to learn this summer at the NRO?
I hope to learn more about the orchestra managing process and how to efficiently work in a competitive musical environment. Also to have a better understanding on how to operate non-profit organizations. And more importantly, I am hoping to meet people, make new friends and connections.

What activities/hobbies do you most enjoy?
I really like being outside, going on long walks and enjoying nature. Listening to music and dancing are my favorite things to do with friends.
