Beatriz, Author and EC Miami Student

Beatriz, an EC Miami student, has written two books so far. At EC Miami, she took English courses that greatly helped her improve her English language skills and will one day help her translate of of her books if it every becomes an international bestseller! Below, read what she has to say about her experience.


Hi, my name is Beatriz Scudder. I am 18 years old and I am from Cerquilha, Brazil. I have been studying at EC Miami since June 29th, and I will be here until July 31st.

I always liked to read and write, so one day I decided to write a story that I would like to read. That’s how O Segredo de Olivia (The Secret of Olivia) emerged. The book is a love story about a couple madly in love, but they can not be together, making the readers wonder: ‘Is the destination so powerful to be able to separate you from the only person that makes your heart beat faster?’

Now, I am writing my second book. It has been a challenge so far because it is completely different from the first book. Still, I hope that I can do this for the rest of my life because I really love this job.

I chose EC Miami because I want to improve my English, and I thought that it is the best school. Now I know it! Being here has helped me as a writer because I have experiences that can be used in my books. Also, if one day my book becomes internationally known, I can help translate it!
