Oi, tudo bom? (Hey, how are you?)

Brazil Youth Ambassadors is a three-week youth leadership exchange for 50 high school students from around Brazil. It is highly competitive, with more than 19,000 applications in 2017! The students begin in Lake Tahoe for an orientation, then break up into smaller groups for home stays in communities across the United States, followed by a wrap up in Washington, DC.

Storywise met up with the students in Lake Tahoe, continued filming with the home stay group in Portland, and then rejoined everyone in Washington, DC.
