Hello! My name is Carina Y. Klein, I am from São Paulo, Brazil.
I love to travel, meet people, learn customs and cultures and hear about different histories and experiences. I believe that from the moment you really allow yourself to learn new things and listen to people, you start to understand better, and what you used to see only one way starts being seen in several different ways.
I have always dreamt of living at least once outside of Brazil, and when I was younger I thought it would only be to study, but my mind changed and I wanted to do some volunteer work. So when I was looking on the internet I found Cultural Canvas Thailand, and I realized that with this program I am not only making this dream come true but also I would have the opportunity to help in a very beautiful project, which contributes to social change, and creative, emotional and spiritual development through the arts.
I studied economy but I didn’t find myself in this area. As I’ve always loved photography since I was a child, I did a basic course. As I learned only the basics I still have a lot to learn. So living in Chiang Mai and working with this project is not only an opportunity to help and meet people but also an opportunity to know myself better and find something that I really like to do, what can be photographed, who knows…
I think that I am going the right way now.
