Sara is a Brazilian Copywriter finishing her studies and one of this year’s Future Lions winners.

Sara Uhelski, 28, is a Brazilian Copywriter finishing her studies at Miami Ad School San Francisco and one of this year’s Future Lions winners. She used to be a journalist and it took her four years (and three months covering a season of Big Brother Brazil) to find out it wasn’t her thing. 

What was your first ever job? 

My first job as a reporter was at Folha de S. Paulo, a Brazilian newspaper. I covered the bars section of a weekly magazine that came with the newspaper, so my job was basically to visit new bars in the city, try their food and drinks undercover and later write about it.
