Doing all this always with the support of my family and friends. After all, what is worth sharing is. Because I really believe that alone I go faster, but accompanied I go much further.
And in that spirit, I fell in love with the UB 515 when I saw my trainer Lucas Vilhena getting ready. I dream of this test, I shudder to imagine myself there. And I train for that to happen'. I want to be an Ultraman..."
