I’m planning on attending a study abroad program through the university to go study international business journalism in the flourishing country of Brazil. Over the next 4 years, the largest South American country will host 3 major sporting events, the Confederation Cup, World Cup and the Olympics. On top of that, major technology companies and other businesses are putting head quarters in Brazil to anchor their South American projects. The country is quickly becoming an international economic staple. I want to see it first hand.
My goal of this trip is simple. To help broaden my perspective on the way a global economy works. We no longer can simply focus on the United States technology development and expect everyone else to follow. Our technology companies have paved the way towards a bigger picture, one that creates relationships from Rio De Janeiro to New York to London. I want to see that first hand.
I’m raising money through a kick-starter website, gofundme.com, where you can donate a $1 or $1,000 to my trip (anything will help!). My promise to you is simple, if you donate I will blog/provide photo and video content of my trip, a first hand account of what I’ve learned in Brazil. You can follow my whole journey on this website. Thanks so much and I hope you enjoy my experience!
