I’ve been wanting to write about my degree thesis for a long time, or what we call it in Portuguese here, TCC ( Conclusion Course Work). Last year I had already started to think about a theme, and I thought about making my TCC about the native people from my region, especially from my city, a tribe of Guarani Kaiowá, and so, my head started running wild with ideas, until some time ago I was sure to propose an urbanization, like an Urban Tribe like there is in Campo Grande, but I saw that it would probably be a complex subject to work on and I wouldn't be able to do a good job. I researched my topic but my mind opened up when I became better acquainted with the place of my object of study, there in the tribe "Te’ Yikue" I met the teachers of the local school, a bilingual school for the Kaiowá people, talking with them, I got what they really need, a place for meetings and events, there was another one, but it burned down, it was made of wooden walls and a straw roof. Well, this visit was enough for me, I was inspired to plan, I had gotten a great and fascinating challenge, plan something where modernity, sustainability and local culture coexist.
Well….now, I’m wearing out my mind from all the planning, I’m so exited and it’s gonna be an amazing job , I’m getting so much more than just learning how to plan… ( Thankyou Luis Perez for review my test)
