2019 International Student Travel Video Contest Entry
- Sammy Fernandes
I came to the United States two years ago to accomplish my childhood dream of studying near Hollywood; however, I ended up finding a passion much bigger than that. As a woman born and raised in the Amazon rain forest in Brazil, I have seen my state, Rondonia, being target of one of the biggest forest destruction in the world. I want to become an environment/climate reporter and travel the world to cover communities that, just like me, were also affected by global warming. My proposed travel is to go to Botswana in Africa first, so I can get immerse in a culture that not a lot of people talk about, and show the world how their culture and lifestyle is. Even though we are separated by oceans and borders, at the end of the day, we are all one.
