Luana Cunha is a woman of many talents. As a high school teacher, singer, and entrepreneur, she wears multiple hats and excels in each role. Her journey is a testament to passion, dedication, and the power of following one’s heart.

Teaching has always been a part of Luana’s life, and she loves every moment, especially in Brazil. She cherishes the connections she has made with her former students, some of whom are now successful lawyers and doctors. Reflecting on her time as their Portuguese teacher, Luana recalls heartwarming interactions on Instagram, where they reminisce about the past and celebrate each other’s achievements.

One of the most unforgettable moments in Luana’s teaching career occurred during a school event. As she performed at a concert organized by her school, she witnessed tears of joy in the audience. It was a profound experience, reaffirming the impact of music and art on people’s lives.

Aside from teaching, Luana is also an entrepreneur. Her business ventures are deeply rooted in her passion for music and Brazilian culture. Through her concerts, she strives to create an immersive experience where even non-Portuguese speakers can appreciate the beauty of Brazilian music and poetry. The positive feedback she receives from her audience fuels her passion and motivates her to organize more events in the future.

Starting a business was not just about making money for Luana but about sharing something she sincerely cared about with the world. Her advice to aspiring entrepreneurs is simple yet powerful: follow your heart. While it’s essential to be practical and reasonable, true success stems from genuine passion and dedication.

Despite her busy schedule as a teacher and entrepreneur, Luana continues to prioritize education. She values formal education but also enjoys learning from experienced individuals in her field and sharing experiences with friends and colleagues. For Luana, learning is a lifelong journey, and every interaction presents an opportunity to grow.

Staying connected to her Brazilian roots is essential for Luana, personally and professionally. Whether it’s through music, literature, or language, she immerses herself in Brazilian culture every day. Maintaining close ties with her family in Brazil and participating in Brazilian community gatherings helps her preserve traditions and stay connected to her heritage.

Looking ahead, Luana’s aspirations are clear: she wants to continue promoting Brazilian culture through her teaching, music, and entrepreneurial endeavours. Her goal is to create more opportunities for people to experience the richness of Brazilian art and culture, bridging the gap between continents and bringing a piece of Brazil to Canada.
