Tereza, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil


Tereza, 59, lives with her husband in Alemão, a favela in Rio de Janeiro. We asked her our questions after she saw us interviewing Thanyá and Douglas. She insisted we should question her as she has lived in the favela for 45 years. We were happy to do just that.

Where is your favourite place in the world?

Here in Alemão. It’s what I’m used to.

What is your greatest love?

My mother, who is not here anymore, and my granddaughter.

If you could travel in time, where would you go?

Back to when my mother was alive.

What do you have for breakfast?

I don’t eat breakfast. I just drink coffee.

Describe your perfect day.

A perfect day is always sunny, but I wouldn’t go to the beach. I don’t like the beach like everyone else.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?

I would love to fly.
