I AM Paulo Miranda

I AM A GLOBAL CITIZEN. As an Economics/Finance and International Business major, I’m living my education. I’m from Belo Morizonte, Brazil, so every day in Moscow is like being in the classroom; learning different cultures and making new friends. I came to Idaho for the quality of its tennis program, the strength of the Western Athletic Conference and the University of Idaho’s reputation for academic excellence. I’ve always been a competitive person, but being here has taught me the importance of having both an open mind and a determined spirit. When I return home to Brazil, I’m looking forward to putting all of my experiences as a student-athlete at Idaho to good use, both in my career and in life.
