"Who am I?"

MAY 5th, 2021

Gabriel Brina

Hello, everybody! My name is Gabriel Brina and I am 25 years old. I currently live in the city of Itaguara, in the state of  Minas Gerais. I study Industrial/Production Engineering at the Federal University of Triângulo Mineiro. I first started Chemical Engineering, but after a year and a half abroad to the United Kingdom I decided to pivot to Production Engineering, to be able to expose myself to more business classes and management courses.


I was part of a Brazilian initiative called ProLíder, to train new leaders for our country. During the year of 2017, I travelled almost every weekend to São Paulo to take part in trainings. It was a great experience of teamwork and learning from different professionals across different areas.


I am a member at my course’s junior enterprise (Projep Jr.), working at the marketing department. We help Brazilian entrepreneurs achieve their objectives through different consulting/engineering projects with the help of our University’s teachers. Brazil has a big movement across states of this type of junior enterprises. It always amazes me how the best way to learn is usually through immersive experiences and getting out of “just theory”.


I am Buddhist and try to practice meditation/mindfulness every day. I believe hard work / high performance does not have to come at the cost of our physical or mental health. Trying to balance these objectives is part of life, right?


I want to expand my communication skills and teamwork through the case competition. Learn from different peers and really strive for a human centered design approach, a topic I have learned to really like.
