"We now have the opportunity to meet and grow fueled by inspiration and mutual empowerment. We will learn from people who speak our language and know well the immigration journey. What we do is to encourage Brazilians to help each other and grow into a united self-supported community."
Being a foreigner in the United States changed the way I saw the Brazilian immigrant diaspora and blossomed my profound desire to help my compatriots to thrive personally, professionally and culturally in the USA in the shortest and less painful way as possible.
So I decided to work voluntarily with the Consulate of Brazil in Los Angeles and soon I became the leader of the Southern California Brazilian Immigrants Council helping families to adjust and learn their way through educational programs, information and networking events.
Helping others utilizing my professional skills opened a magical door to a new life in the US and it encouraged me to do more for my people.
In 2016 I founded the OC Brazil Business Club - the first Brazilian Networking Club for Brazilian professionals and business owners in Southern California.
The Club is an organization that produces B2B and B2C creative marketing solutions. From setting up business like-minded people with potential consumers and key people to collaborate with, to bringing light to technical, social and marketing issues, the OC Brazil Business Club became a space where Brazilians and foreigners - interested in doing business with the community - grow together through mutual empowerment and networking.
Today, the OC Brazil Business Club is recognized as the organization that represents the Brazilian Culture of entrepreneurs in Orange County. We work empowering the social efforts from the official Institutions from Brazil in SoCal, such as, the Consulate of Brazil in Los Angeles and the Brazil California Chamber of Commerce.
COLLABORE BRANDS LLC
is the mother-company and the oficial sponsor of the OC Brazil Business Club.
As a journalist in love with photography, I love to help my clients to create a creative communications strategy so that their overall image will send the right message to stakeholders.
I am the CEO of Collabore Brands, a creative communication boutique-style company that helps small business owners and influencers from Brazil in their international expansion to the US.
ARYADNE WOODBRIDGE PHOTOGRAPHY
I started photographing in 2009 after I moved to US. At the time, I was a happy married woman looking for opportunities in SoCal. I was struggling to maintain my career as a corporate communicator and so I decided to look for different ways to communicate my passions. Thats when I bought a camera and everything changed in my life.
From family portraits to commercial photography was very quick. Soon I realized my goal was to be creative and also provide my clients with a holistic creative service, from strategy to implementation.
Today I spent most of my time working as a creative communicator and a commercial photographer in Orange County and Los Angeles for professionals and small businesses.
My expertises are: headshots, Business and Personal Branding Portraits.
