Hello, Iโ€™m Stefanni Brasil. Thanks for visiting my page!

About me

Iโ€™m originally from Brazil, but I live in Vancouver, BC.

I love learning, including how to learn more effectively. I like to see how much I can change, and how much I can become a better version of myself.

Once I get interested in something, Iโ€™m pretty good at extracting whatโ€™s useful for me and changing my habits until I get a positive feedback loop. For example:

  • I learned English when I was a teenager by listening to songs and watching movies. My family didn’t have lots of money to invest in my Education. Also, I lived in such a tiny city that school languages didn’t even exist there!
  • I adopted a whole foods plant-based diet. I’m super healthy effortlessly;
  • I used to invest +50% of my income following the FIRE - Financial Independence Retire Early - principles;
  • I completely rewired my brain to have a growth mindset and be more positive. I even read self-help books now!

More About me & My Projects

  • I have a degree in Portuguese & French Literature. I also won a scholarship to study at the University of Coimbra, Portugal for 2 years;
  • I learned how to code when I was finishing my Literature degree;
  • Currently, I’m exploring different and exciting work to do with my coding skills. I’m not looking for full-time opportunities;
  • Iโ€™m on my path to be the first millionaire in my family;
  • I want to democratize access to Mental Health & Coaching resources;
  • I love exercising! I run, I ride my bike, I do yoga, I do lots of bodyweight exercises. I do 20 pushups every day (a tiny habit);
  • I dream of crossing North America in an R.V., but I don’t think my cats would like this idea;
