Hello Laura. Unlike Portuguese, in English you cannot or perhaps should not use a feminine personal pronoun after the word person. You might have thought of writing, "he or she" after the word "person."
On the topic. I have greatly improved on how I should treat my neighbors. Now I greet them and hold the elevator door open for them. I also had the powerful triple air horn removed from my car leaving the car's normal single horn in place. I also have sought more peaceful ways of dealing with people since then. With a smile. My strongest weapon.
