Meet Nicia

Nicia's homepage:

Hello! I am from Brazil, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais. I am 41 years old, and I have two children (boys) aged 15 and 16. I have been divorced for the past 14 years.

I have been working with recycled papers, handmade, for 20 years. My school training is in Arts, especially engraving. I´d like, very much, to speak and write English well, because there are many other artists in the world who make paper too, and I need to communicate with them.

That's all for now.

I hope to make contact with other students soon.

My best wishes.

Nicia Mafra

Nicia does interesting work in Belo Horizonte, where she organizes street people in recycling efforts meant to help the community. Read here some ICQ conversations with Nicia on her work with recycling, and how the street people join this effort:

On Feb 4, 2002, Nicia wrote ups about her preparations for Carnival:

Hi Vance, I´m just working in Carnival for an association of people who collect recycleable materials on the street. We made all fantasies using the "trash" materials, and talking about people who live from that, what we can do to put an end to this way of life and make a good world for all with recycling.

I will send some pictures, and mabe some "samba" music.

This is a special moment for us, with happiness!

I will write soon.

Bye. Nicia

Nicia is concerned about global warming. Read what she thinks about it here <--
