After graduating in International Relations in her home country, Brazil, Cristina decided to embark on an adventure by accepting a scholarship to study Hungarian Language and Culture at the Balassi Institute, Budapest. During her studies, she fell in love with Budapest and made the decision to move here. Cristina has a thirst for new experiences and after being involved in exciting World Cup related projects in Brazil, tasting a bit of the tourism sector in Budapest and looking into the English language teaching and examinations world, she decided to join the Milestone Institute to be part of its ambitious and driven team. Having lived in São Paulo, Sydney and Budapest (so far), she is absolutely certain that any experience abroad can contribute immensely to an individual’s character. When in Brazil, she used to perform in a Hungarian folk dance group, but now in Budapest she has diverted her heritage-focused hobby to a pop sing-and-dance combo at the Budapest Show, Kórus.
