Social Studies with Amy Rosenberg
As Miami continues to evolve with new leaders at the forefront of initiatives that are catapulting us into international discussions, so too is Amy Rosenberg and her perspective on where Miami is and where Miami is going – which is why her column on SocialMiami must evolve as well into a medium where leaders are identified, positive initiatives are highlighted and perhaps a few problems are addressed. In this first edition of Amy Rosenberg’s Social Studies, our resident civic leader gives Miami’s public transportation a ride, and her witty and honest take on what can only be described as a dreadful experience shines light on an aspect of our city that can certainly use an upgrade.
Gala Gals: Carolina Tavares de Melo
After a successful inaugural gala in 2012, the BrazilFoundation, a nonprofit organization that raises funds to support social projects in Brazil, will hold its second annual gala in Miami on March 26 at the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens. Chairing this year’s event is Maria Carolina Tavares de Melo, a Brazilian native born and raised in Recife, in the sun-drenched Northeastern region of the country.
In 2006, Melo married Paulo Tavares de Melo and they moved to Miami, where she enrolled in two consecutive International Law LL.M. programs at the University of Miami. She quickly embraced the city and became involved with the University, where she is now a member of the Advisory Committee for the International Graduate Law Programs’ Alumni Association. She is also a mentor for new International Law LL.M. students who are beginning their courses at UM.
