MFA Student, San Francisco Art Institute, Academic Year 2012/2013

My Fulbright Experience was an unforgettable life experience. Two years of a very rich exchange where I found volunteer and community spirit, cutting edge ideas and an inspiring approach towards education and society. An experience that went way behind school, offering unexpected encounters and adventures, life lasting conversations and friendships, travels and a whole new input in terms of my art practice. 

Jesse Fuller sang “I got the blues from my baby livin’ by the San Francisco Bay”, Tony Bennett believes he “left” his “heart in San Francisco” – well I actually left my boots from Alentejo in the airport.. – and finally Eric Burdon says “Old cop young cop feel alright on a warm San Franciscan night”.
