Angola – Maurício


Home Country: Angola Country of Study: Brazil Undergraduate Degree: Computer Engineering

Maurício is an AAI Scholar from Angola, studying in Brazil. During the self-isolation period in 2020, he dedicated his time to studying finance, in order to better understand the concepts of business. He has also been learning Brazilian Sign Language (LIBRAS). Learning LIBRAS is linked to his Ashinaga Proposal. One day, he would like to create an institute that teaches Angolan Sign Language (LGA), in order to create a more inclusive space for the hearing impaired and the general community. In that space, he will advocate for both the inclusion of hearing-impaired people in society and also to offer classes that combat illiteracy among adults.
