Rosa Waters


Rosa Waters graduated in 2015 with a double major in Latin American Studies and Political and Social Thought (PST). At UVA, she studied Portuguese and wrote her fourth year PST thesis on participatory urban planning using a case study she'd come across while studying in Recife, Brazil the summer before. After graduating, Rosa was able to connect with those from both Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking countries in her work at an immigration law firm. In February 2016, Rosa headed back to Brazil on a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship grant to teach at the federal university in Curitiba, a city famous for its innovative urban planning. She explored the city on her bike during the grant period, and now that her work at the university has ended, is setting off to explore surrounding regions of Brazil and Argentina on an extended bicycle tour!
