Moving from a large city in Brazil to a small town in Oregon at a young age, Bruna dreamed of living in Portland. Now, as a Portland State University student, she is creating her own academic path and aspires to be a music journalist. Music has always been there for her, and her happy place is concerts. (She’s gone to too many to count.) Bruna’s other love is writing, and she takes pleasure in creating articles on music she enjoys, which makes up a large collection of vinyl, cassette tapes and CDs.
