The Wildcat

Lica Rosa
Junior Lica Rosa is interested in the journalism class because she enjoys descriptive writing and displaying the emotions of people through the art of photography. Her interest in photography was inspired by her favorite photographer, Sebastião Salgado.
Rosa is an exchange student from São Paulo, South East Brazil, which is located in South America. She arrived in the U.S. on Aug. 8, but will be returning to her homeland to live with her mother and brother on Dec. 22, which means that she is here for the first semester of the school year.

Lica is staying with her host parents, Shanda and Weston Miller, and their kids Mason and James. ”I really miss my home but I’m loving the experience”, Rosa said.

“My original city, São Paulo, has 12 million people. I think that’s the main difference from Warsaw, and I like it!” Rosa said.  

Rosa is interested in coming back to visit America later in life. In the meantime, she is very interested in learning new things, meeting new friends and experiencing everything that the region has to offer.

Her favorite animal is a  “Boto cor de rosa”, which is a pink dolphin that lives in the Amazon rivers. When in her home land, she loves to visit the river beach and enjoys gardening many types of plants, such as succulents.

Rosa plans on pursuing a career as a labor and delivery nurse to help women in her home country.
