Name one fun fact that people don’t know about you: When I arrived in the US for the first time. I didn’t speak a word of English and my cell phone was not working so I couldn’t leave the airport, because I didn’t know where to go. So I heard someone speaking in Portuguese and I had to run and ask for help. It was embarrassing but it worked.

Favorite way to unwind outside of bull riding: play soccer, run, go to the gym

Good luck charm: don’t have it
