Pedro Messeder, 19y.o born in Ilhéus (BA), Brazil
In December 2019, I travelled at an exchange program to Costa Rica through the Cuspydal project, which together with 4 other Brazilians we faced a challenge of a new experience, very promising and with great learning though. I left my home country looking for a brand new living and it was there that, I accompanied by other exchange colleagues, I learned about how to be a good leader for my society, the ideal communication in my native language and in English, besides having learned to be a person more open to new cultures and people, I remember group activities where I saw in practice that “where there is a goal to be achieved there is a leader” and a good leader should watch, support and understand skills and difficulties from it team. then I realized that moments like this are the ones that gave me the opportunity to apply this knowledge to professional development as a pilot, such as dealing with crises moments and also the management of resources existing in the cabin during flights. Thinking about my past, I’m proud of what I lived and learned so today I’m able to look up to my future and I see that in addition to being an airplane pilot, I also want to be an excellent leader.
