Brazil / Bioacoustics Researcher in Brazil
Has this programme impacted your personal or professional life? If so, how?
Yes! I have grown so much since I first arrived in Brazil. I had to challenge myself and put myself out of my comfort zone on a daily basis while at IPBio, from starting from scratch learning about bioacoustics to practicing my rusty Portuguese with the locals to doing some tricky hikes for someone afraid of heights! The people at IPBio and in Iporanga definitely challenged me to change my perspective and I value the time I spent there immensely.
