Meet a Carioca Monday Part 2

I 'm very honored to have this Carioca take part in my Meet a Carioca Monday. He's a local team player, always giving back to his city and community. He's also the writer of the very interesting blog: Life in Favela of Rocinha, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Without further ado, I introduce you to Deejay Zezinho.

I asked Deejay Zezinho:

Q. What made you move to the US and what made you come back to Brazil?

A. I was born to an American mother and Brazilian father. My father thought it best that I go to the USA to learn, study and know more about life there. Also he thought I would have more opportunities there. I was born in Rocinha and I plan never to leave. The people here expect big things of me. I need not disappoint them...

I will say Zezinho, I don't think you will!


  1. That's it? That's all we get? I want more. ;-)

  2. :) i was not sure how much to say...I know I could write a book..

  3. hahahaha. We could do an interview and you could say all you want! :D
