Hi, my name is Hudson Santiago. I am 27 years old and I live in the city of Fortaleza, Brazil together with my wife Eurenice and our two dogs.
I am currently studying marketing and communications at a presitigous university in order to earn a degree and be able to give a voice to my community.
I was raised in the neighborhood of Bom Jardim, one of Fortaleza's notorious favelas and a place of prevalent crime.
I have been a skater for the past 20 years and it is this connection to a global skaters community that has opened my mind to possibilities beyond the limitations of where I am from.
While life has not always been easy and I am very familiar with living in poverty, skating kept me on a straight path in life and has saved me from joining gangs or drugs.
Welcome to my world!
