multimedia journalist .
I’m Mai Dornelles Guzik
I am a collector of eclectic experiences. I once rode a racing bike down a mountain in Bolivia at maximum altitude of 4650 meters above sea level. I helped to built schools, houses and libraries in Peru. I have been in the middle of the Atacama Desert for three consecutive days during Carnival eating just bread and water.
I ride liquid walls of salt water that propel me into a state of relaxation. I am known for sculpting bodies of clay and bringing them to life. I present inspirational speeches that lead armies into battles.
I breed a 16 years old cat, love playing acoustic guitar, love singing and used to perform open-mic shows at a karaoke house.
I am a dreamer. A risk taker. A backpacker. I follow my heart.
I love life…A lot.
Nice to meet you.
“I became a journalist to come as close as possible to the heart of the world.” –
