Hello my friends! :hugging:

My name is Gabi and I'm the new Community Advocate here at Typeform! I just joined the company and couldn’t be more excited about being part of this fantastic community! 

 

I’m a big believer in the power of community and that’s why I couldn’t resist the temptation to join this project. Together we’ll keep growing a friendly, exciting and useful space for all Typeform creators to exchange ideas, solutions and, more importantly, some jokes (I’m a big fan of dad jokes!).

 

I’m Brazilian but I’ve been living in the Old Continent (aka Europe) since 2017. I’m very passionate about traveling and new cultures, so I can’t wait to get to know more about you and your culture. I’ve lived in Canada, Ireland, Brazil, Italy and Portugal. Now, thanks to Typeform, I’ll soon be making a move to lovely Spain! 

 

In my previous life, I worked as a Sports Journalist and, like most Brazilians, I’m a little bit obsessed with football. Feel free to open a topic in the community to test my knowledge about it and have a (healthy) argument about who’s the best player of all time!


Check out my typeform intro to get to know me a little bit better! Fun fact about myself? I love Spaghetti Carbonara and I dance Samba and Forró (Brazilian dances). What about you? :smiley:

Hey @Gabi Amaral! Welcome to the Typeform Community!!! :heart_eyes:

 

The Community team is delighted to have you and I'm confident this will be an amazing experience!

 

I also want to let our members know that I'll be moving to Support and therefore I'll be less active here in the Community. I'll miss you all but be assured I'll join some conversations eventually, so this is just a see you later =) I'm sure the Community will be in great hands with this amazing team @Liz@Gabriel@James and… @Gabi Amaral from now on! 

 

I'm excited to see the Community growing more and more! Thanks everyone who collaborate to that. :hugging:

Welcome to the team, @Gabi Amaral ! We’re so glad to have you. You’ll play a vital role in making this community a unique space where we all learn together (and from each other) about how to do extraordinary things with Typeform. The sky is the limit when it comes what our creators can achieve using Typeform and VideoAsk - and we are here to support and amplify that. 

There’s been a lot of talk about me doing a dance for the community, but I think we now have a better candidate for that sort of initiative 😂

Fun fact about me? 

One of my favourite ‘sports’ is catching flies and mosquitos ‘on the fly’. My dream is one day being able to catch them with chopsticks. I’ll call that sport ‘chopstick hunting’

@Gabi Amaral - welcome to the Community. looking forward to your insights and help in making the world of Typeforming smooth. 

@Mariana - as i have said before, i am both happy (for you)  and sad (for the community) to see you move over to the support side. I know that you will be a tremendous asset to your new team but we will miss your sunshine on a daily basis. 

@Gabriel - lol re the chopsticks.. It is a ‘punishment’ here that i have to do something similar to catch popcorn that my 5 yr old tosses my way… only came close once. My wife is much better at that game lol. 

 

cheers

Hello Typeform Community!

The Support team is very very lucky to have you @Mariana! :heart_eyes: I'm pretty sure you'll miss our community and the team as much as we'll miss you, so please, never be a stranger!!! :hugging:

@Gabriel thanks for having me in the team! And don't worry about the dancing, I'll be in charge of that from now on (singing as well, my mom always says I'm amazing at it!).
P.S. If you want to become a pro in 'chopstick hunting', I suggest you find a Mr. Miyagi for yourself! 

Oh @john.desborough, I've already heard a lot of great things about you! :sunglasses: Can't wait to start collaborating and contributing to this amazing community! I think I've missed a fun fact about you? Is there anything I should know about you?

Hey @Gabi Amaral: there is a very important fact about @john.desborough: he LOVES coffee! And he knows how to make a vegan feijoada!!! (by the way, I'd love to try that!) 

 

And to all of you: thank you very much for your kind words. I'm excited to move but I'm already missing all of this. :heart:

@Gabi Amaral - rumours.. just rumours.. though it is true that I love coffee. and i have the tshirts to prove it.. I loved your get to know you quiz - nice to see a traveler AND someone who has been to Granville Island .. 

I will admit to having traveled to over 60 countries for work but the best times were when i was based in London UK and could grab a cheap flight to the continent early saturday morning, wander around a city until sunday evening and fly back.. it was cheaper to do that than to go out for a meal in London lol.. 

Looking forward to keeping this community growing! welcome to the ‘madness’… 

ps ..i wonder if @Gabriel could catch flies/mosquitos with the chopsticks while doing the samba… ??

@Gabi Amaral Welcome to the Community from another expatriate Brazilian!:grin:

I share your love for Samba, Forró and Carbonara. Just had some fun moments answering your Typeform intro!

@Mariana As I have said before, it is a bittersweet feeling, but I know it is for the greater good. Gonna submit tons of tickets!:laughing:

@Gabriel You’re invited to visit my place. We have plenty of chopsticks. And flies…

Mental note: @john.desborough can make feijoada and @Liz can make a really good carbonara.

 

 

Fun fact about me?

I'm a drummer in my spare time and love to learn new languages.

Great to meet you all! Happy you enjoyed my quiz! :nerd:

@john.desborough Oh, when I lived in Vancouver I was at Granville Island ALL THE TIME! It's definitely one of my favorite spots over there (also North Vancouver). 
Well, coffee makes life better! I couldn't live without it. I've heard you've got some cool coffee t-shirts. Looking forward to seeing them!

@Liz Ok, now I'll try not to be a stalker when you're in Spain (Or Portugal or Italy!) :grimacing:

@Paulo, after a few years living abroad, I know that Brazilians are all over the world! It must be AMAZING living in Japan.
You just gave me an idea of a Samba and Forró workshop… Let's plan this! Oh, and I love languages as well. How many do you speak?

Sounds like @Gabi Amaral or @Paulo need to post a dancing video like @Gabriel ‘s when we reach 7k members! :smiley::rofl:

@Gabi Amaral This is so true! We’re in like everywhere!
There's a joke running in Brazil, saying that Brazilians on Mars are concerned about how to act when the Americans arrive...:laughing:
I really can’t complain about living in Japan, I really like in here!
I speak Portuguese, English, Spanish and Japanese. Currently trying to learn Korean and Japanese Sign Language. How about you?

@Liz You didn't say that!!:scream:
I'll need to watch @Gabriel ‘s video for reference then...:laughing:
