"Before coming to Goldsmiths, I was working for eight years in the media industry in my home country, Brazil, firstly in PR firms and later in the marketing department of a big TV company. Studying at Goldsmiths is an incredible opportunity to enrich my previous professional background and to deepen my knowledge with a more theoretical approach. What I find most interesting about my course is its interdisciplinary perspective, combining many fields of academia in order to develop innovative/provocative ways of thinking about media. In addition, I benefit a lot from seminars, in which students from all around the world, with completely different backgrounds, discuss their views on the topics of the week.
Being granted a Santander Scholarship gave me further motivation to dive headlong into this year of full time studies, not only because it is a sign that the institution believes in my potential, but also because it is an important financial help."
