If you are currently in a gap year, please answer the following prompt: "What have you done in your gap year? How did your activities contribute to your personal or academic growth in a unique way?".
In my gap year (That started in 2017) I started to write a blog about politics and stuff (That you can access here: politikesblog.wordpress.com), I became a local guide in my neighborhood, certificated by Google Maps, and I have improved my English. I think those activities, even if simple, has helped me in my personal growth because they’re authentic ways of doing something to help the community.

Hello, my name is Luis, and I'm here because I believe in my potential and in addition, I believe in Brazil too.
Now in 2017, I'm in a gap year, and I already said the things I've done. Therefore in this video, I would like to talk about something that I have not mentioned before.
When I was an intern in a Federal Bank, every day I knew a lot of people living extreme poverty asking for help in government social care, but the worst part was seeing the normalcy that people faced this big problem, and this experience helped me decide what I'm gonna do in my future, which is make a better country for all.
Well, this is me, and I hope you believe in my potential. Thank you so much.
