Barbara, friend of Matthieu and Laura
What is your superpower?
My superpower, I think, is empathy. I love to talk to people and I love to know people and I always know how people feel things differently than me.
What would you change in your country if you were able to?
I think education in Brazil, because people are not used to reading, going to the cinema and these things are very important for me. So the thing that I will change about my country is I'll make people more interested in culture.
What are you proud of?
I'm proud of being a good boss I think, because I have two little girls with me. They are my interns and I think I am very good with them.
What is your spirit vegetable?
Carrots, because they are my my favorite vegetable. I always eat them in my salad.
How important are friends to you?
I think they are very important because I don't have sisters or brothers, so my friends are my sisters and brothers. They're like a family to me.
Is it easy to become friends in your country?
It's not very easy. I think the coldest place in Brazil is Brasilia because Brasilia is a very young city and people haven't made connections yet so I think it's more difficult to have a friend in Brasilia. But for my generation that's born here, it's easier to make friends than for my parents, for example.
Can women and men be friends?
I think there is a symmetry between male and female so I'm very feminist girl. I don't know, in my opinion I think it's more difficult to be friends with a man than with a woman.
