On Students For Liberty: “SFL has been present in my life since their germinal events in Brazil. I started to collaborate as a speaker, sharing my knowledge and helping students on their path. I participated in several events organized by SFL, such as Summer Seminar, Liberdade na Estrada, leadership training, and Libertycon. Today I am thrilled to be a part of such an exciting organization and to be able to contribute with my knowledge and expertise.”
