My first “head to toes” fantasy story was written by the age of 11, "O Mundo da Imaginação".
At school, I used to create storylines in group projects, went to the finals of a Portuguese Language Contest, and my rush-before-the-class poem “O que eu gostaria de ver da janela do meu quarto“ was read twice during class. I was also that person who’d write a full paragraph of 7 sentences for a two-line answer in exams.
