I begin by saying how grateful I am for my time as a student at Galpão Aplauso. It was a huge learning cycle that made me develop even more issues of daily life and society. Returning fifteen years later as an artistic instructor only shows how the project trains us not only to be artists, but to be good citizens.

It was a surprise for me. A friend talked a lot about the opportunities Galpão Aplauso could offer. The strong point is that, regardless of everything, we learn that we can always get past what happens outside. Life is not easy, we have to look for the best of ourselves.
The starting point is that Galpão Aplauso helped me pursue my dreams. I love being here, and I feel it will give me great opportunities in life. Whenever I bring up an idea, even if it may seem crazy, I always have the incentive to accomplish it and make it possible. Everything is possible, it only takes courage and determination.

Galpão Aplauso is the place where I can express myself the way I want, doing what I like. A place of opportunity. I meet friends from all over the city here. Living far from the city center, is really cool to be close to everything: I can get out of here and visit museums, theaters, sights and learn more about Rio. It helps me channel my energy into something productive.

Galpão Aplauso is a wonderland! Here I have the freedom to be who I am. I have space to do what I love and say what I want, as long as I am aware that I don't invade other's space. As we coexist with diversity, it takes me out of the comfort zone, since I come from a place where most people are like me.
