About: Vivian Flanzer was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where she spent most of her life. She currently lives in the US, where she coordinates the Portuguese Language Program at the Department of Spanish and Portuguese of the University of Texas at Austin. Vivian has a B.A. in Communications, an M.A. in Anthropology from the Museu Nacional of the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro and is currently working on a graduate degree in Foreign Language Education at UT-Austin. She had lots of fun creating ClicaBrasil because it gave her the opportunity to meet and work with amazing people in a project that incorporates her love for Brazil, anthropology, photography, film, writing and, of course, teaching Portuguese.
