It must not come as a surprise to anyone who knows me in person, but I run a non-profit educational project here, in Rio de Janeiro, called Pré-Universitário Comunitário Rubem Alves (Rubem Alves Community Pre-University course, in Portuguese), aimed at helping marginalized students (and ex-students) prepare for joining a college program, and compete for a public-funded tuition, or a scholarship. I mention this because I talk about it a lot more than anyone else can endure. I absolutely adore this Project, and it has helped myself find meaning and balance in my life.
But I will talk more about my work there in future articles. I don't want this to be a self-serving post. I don't do it to glorify myself, and I don't need (or expect) any recognition. I'm here to announce that I'll be hosting a live Hangouts session, tonight, March 3rd, at 10 PM BRST (5P M PST, 1 AM GMT). It will be publicly available to anyone who might be interested to check it out. I will broadcast in Portuguese, of course, and the subject will be Spanish tests on university entry exams.
Shout out to all my PURA students, see y'all there!
