Deborah Lourenço

Deborah received her BA in Government from Smith College in 2009. Her first job as a mentor for at-risk youth in Cambridge, MA set the tone for her career path. Upon returning to Brazil she worked in Niteroi, RJ, establishing partnerships between local NGOs and a British voluntourism organization. In 2013, Deborah decided to explore her interest in international education and joined EducationUSA as an educational adviser.
