In Marcelo’s own words: “an exchange student program is one endeavor you take to teach and learn, but boy... that time of my life opened up the whole world right in front of my eyes!” While as an exchange student in the USA, Marcelo achieved many awards, including Student of the Year in US History, Outstanding performance in Chemistry, and Music Performance.
