About the Author
A dog-lover, devoted artist and Wharton MBA, Cassia Martins was born in the mountainous city of Petropolis, one hour away from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Having spent much of her childhood in Brazil, she subsequently settled in the United States. She graduated from Boston University with a BA in Economics and International Relations and has an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School. Cassia is also an accomplished artist, and after living abroad for many years, she felt a call to return to her homeland, along with her long-haired dachshund, Dolce, and dedicate time to her artistic, and entrepreneurial, endeavors. Born in Rio, which was conceived in precisely 9 months, is the result of that experience."
