REBECCA ALVES

D.A.R.E. Youth Advocacy Board Member from Brazil

My name is Rebecca Alves Oliveira Castro. I am 16 years old. I live in Minas Gerais state, Brazil. My mother is a plastic artist and my father is a police officer. I have also got a 13 year-old brother. I study at the Colégio Tiradentes of the Minas Gerais Military Police.

In my childhood I have always been very curious, I developed very fast at school and I have always loved playing instruments, singing, dancing, and also playing many sports like basketball and soccer. I always loved studying, too. My favorite subject at school is Physics.

I am a part of a youth group in my church where we discuss human behavior, the abuse of legal and illegal drugs, and racial discrimination in order to identify strategies to develop solutions for these problems.

I have been a vocal coach at the Assembleia de Deus Churches since 2015. I teach extracurricular classes in all subjects for middle and elementary school as a way to help my classmates. I am part of the Conservatório Municipal that is a Music School in my city, where I play the cello. I practice ballet and sing all the time. However, my biggest dream is to be a doctor in the Doctors Without Borders program to help many people every day.

I loved becoming a YAB because it’s the greatest opportunity I’ve ever had to develop leadership skills, learn more about D.A.R.E. mission and vision and make good friends.
