Hi, I’m Rachael and I will be the Portuguese editor for the Linguist this year as well as helping to proofread the English sections. As a Modern Language student here at UoB, I’m really happy to be a part of this society because I think it’s an amazing space for students to share their experiences and perspectives. This year I’m hoping to source a wider range of articles for the Portuguese section. I would love to include articles not just about Portugal but also the wider Portuguese speaking world.

I study three languages: German, Spanish and Portuguese and at the moment I’m in Uruguay on my year abroad. I’m looking forward to exploring South America and hope to have made it to Machu Pichu, Foz do Iguaçu and Brazil before Christmas. Then next year I’m off to Lisbon to work on my Portuguese and my pasteis de nata eating skills.
