In my first foreign professional engagement (in Brazil) I was told I’d be able to work and live at the place by speaking English and Spanish, but that was not the case when I arrived and I had to lead a 70+ people group, so I had to learn Portuguese in less than 3 weeks; being lefthanded has always been a struggle with pencil and ink over your hand, so I learned how to write upside down. It almost looks better that when I do it normally; I enjoy putting challenging projects together, so I have recruited orchestras for different concerts and I curated a music festival that will be programmed at least this and next year at the University of Michigan.
