    Inside Out Project

    I am Carla. I am Carioca and this is the first time I volunteer. I decided to do this because I have always been so in love with the Olympics and all sports, so this will definitely be a highlight in my life - "I, Carla, was able to be part of opening of the Olympic games in Brazil, my country!". I am part of the Asian group in the opening. I definitely want to volunteer in other Olympic games around the world. In my IOP picture I will do a "surprise" expression - for me it was a surprise to be called to be in the opening ceremony when actually I had applied to volunteer in the games. But I loved it!

    Inside Out Project

    My name is Josefina, I am carioca. I have dedicated a lot of my time to volunteer work since I was 19. But this time it's special, it's the Olympics! This opportunity is unique! The past days have been a lot of hard work, I come to rehearse almost every day. I will be in the choreograph of the ocean in the opening ceremony, and I'm so excited to do this. On my IOP photo I will just smile and be myself.
