Sao Paulo is a crowded town, it has so many buildings and traffic and so many people in one small place. I miss the energy of being there. I think people who have the power of communication, who have the power of publicity, do have an influence, and if I ever get that opportunity, I will take it. Everything is in our hands – each of us can make a difference and fight. That's something I believe in: taking care of being, always being giving, always trying to be helpful and generous.
