I'm very excited to announce that I have been chosen as one of two writers who will write for the Foreign Policy Association's brand new Brazil blog! I was humbled, to say the least, when I found out the other blogger is actually a professor who specializes in Brazil and Latin America. Luckily, he focuses on climate change and the environment, which I tend to touch on marginally, so I think we will make a good team.
Back in the summer, I found out a friend of mine was writing their Cuba blog, and I noticed they didn't have one for Brazil. So I bombarded the blog editor with applications and samples, and recently, I was really happy to get a call from my friend, who will now be my blog boss, so to speak.
