Beatriz Castro
Student at Unisal College

Beatriz Castro is 20 years-old and comes from Guaratingueta in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil. She's a hard-working, energetic young woman who has achieved many things beyond her family's expectations. She is always ready with a smile and makes a great effort to meet new people and develop herself.

Two years ago she participated in an international program sponsored by the state government. She was chosen for this by her teachers and headmaster as the best student at her technical high school. The program offered was an international cultural exchange. She lived one month in the United States, took an English course, and lived with an American family, where she developed her intercultural skills.

Currently, she is taking business administration at Unisal College and is working as an import/export trainee for Stollberg of Brazil, part of a Greek group called S&B Industrial Minerals.
