by Well

Well well well, here we are again with the most intelectual, interesting and cool subject in our blog (in my humble opinion :p). Today I am going to talk to you about a well-known leader in this world. He was born in an African village and became the most famous African leader in history.

You probably can guess who is this man by the title of this post, right? He was born in in the village of Mvezo in Umtata, any idea? Let’s give another tip, his father was a mighty man in the village and was called Gadla Henry Mphakanyiswa, have you got it now? Well, not a big surprise, but thus comes the best tip. What if I wrote down his last name? Mandela. You probably know who I am talking about, Nelson Mandela.

The Big Interview… Eduardo Nunes

28 Aug

Welcome back to our most popular regular feature, “The Tribalingua Big Interview”. We meet the members of the team and ask them about their lives, loves, hopes and fears…

Eduardo Nunes

This week we’re talking to Eduardo Nunes who is the Solution Architect of Bravi.

In fact,  I would say that I have no special feeling about any city, state or country, what really matters to me are the relationships you establish and how comfortable you feel. I’m 32 years old, and married since December 1st of 2012.

Lucas:

Hello, everyone! I have been here for a month, and I would like to share my first impressions. Everybody is nice: they do everything to make you feel good, they are always ready to help and the work environment is great because of that. The English classes are great: the subjects are brought to the classes in a natural way, so it does not even feel like you are in a English class. People Care is a department which really cares about people, in a way that I have never seen before. These are just a few things I noticed on my first days here. I am sure I will improve as a person and as a professional along with Bravi! See ya!
