Juliana Pereira is a trailblazer; raised by a single mother in Florianópolis, Brazil, she learned at an early age that there’s nothing women can’t do. She began college at the age of 16 and earned her degree in journalism. Her desire to impact the world led her to forego that degree in pursuit of civil engineering.

Today, Juliana is continuing to pave the way for women in engineering at Purdue University. Join us for part one of our two-part interview!
