On the other hand, I want to experience a bond with my teammates that hopefully will last a lifetime. I wish helping a college to win, and feel the urge to win.

Anything else we should know?

I started water polo when I was 15 years old. So I had to step up and dedicate a lot of time to have a spot on the team, and with my mentality and hard work in 2022 I became the 2006 captain. This time with my teammates taught me things that will help my entire life.

I adapt really quickly to new countries because I lived my whole life in France. So when I came back to my country (Brazil) I had to adapt and that’s when I fell in love with waterpolo and decided that was for me.

Before waterpolo I was a karting driver, which in 2020 I was 21 world ranking (X30 senior, iame international games até Portimão). But I let it go to start waterpolo
