Who exactly is this Cntia Miranda?

It's interesting to be an immigrant in Central Maine.  While I've been labeled 'alien' for most of my life (and I kind of like that exotic name), people seem to be more intrigued by my Brazilian nationality here in Bangor than anyone ever was in Boston (other than my Boston-native husband and his family, of course!). 

I think most people envision Brazilians as exotic people who love to party during Carnaval like it's 1999, wear tiny swimwear (well, some do, but not all Brazilians), and roam the Amazon Jungle swinging on tree vines like Tarzan and Jane. I've also had people ask me if we had elephants in the village where I came from.
