“What’s something about you that people would be most surprised to know?”

“I think people would be really surprised to know that my parents were born in Brazil.”

“Wow, that’s so cool! Have you ever been there?”

“Yeah I have, many times actually. The most recent time was in 2019.”

“It seems like such a cool place! What’s your favourite thing about Brazil?”

“I don’t know, there’s a lot. But probably that it’s really warm in the winter. I really wanted to go this year, but all our plans got ruined because of COVID.”
