Currently, Corujinha is at CFdB Grade 10 – already a Capoeirista & already teaching Capoeira in a new place, she is well on her way to achieving the first level of CFdB MONITOR.

With a passion for Latin-based European languages, having studied them at University in the UK, Corujinha has been well equipped to learn & teach Languages such as Spanish & Portuguese and embark on a career as a Capoeira teacher, sharing various cultural artforms she has learned along the way, beginning in the UK and with her travels through South America & Brazil, amongst other places.
As an advocate for Brazilian culture, she continues to inspire others with her passion for Brazilian Artforms through hosting her Brazilian Capoeira Festival in Jersey, UK in 2015.
