Student Story: Gabriel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Tell us about yourself

I am a former Brazilian Air Force Cadet, now a Law Student at FGV, in Rio de Janeiro. I like the interactions between Economics and Law and any thing that makes Law more concrete and less irrational. I like running, taking a walk at the Flamengo Park, and going to the beach and having a good time with my friends.

What got you interested in learning computer science?

A friend of mine introduced me computer science and it was absolutely life changing for me. It was so amazing to see the infinite possibilities you get once you put computer science in whatever you are doing. In Law it is specially noticeable this change of perspective because it is an area that is very static. CS, on the other hand, brings dynamism, so it has a lot to contribute in my field of work.
