Hi! I’m Carla Locatelli and I’m from São Paulo, Brazil. I’ve lived in Utah since 2001 and I am passionate about languages and culture. When I’m not translating the awesome content BRST creates or managing the social media for BRST, I practice and teach capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian art form that involves movement, music, history, community and much more.
