About Us – Mariana

Mariana Ciocca Alves Passos

Servant of God (disciple of Jesus Christ), Esdras’s wife, Evelyn’s mommy and pregnant with baby #2.

Born and raised in São Paulo/SP/Brazil, with half her heart in the State of Rio Grande do Sul/Brazil (birthplace of her mother’s family). Nowadays living in the Republic of Ireland.

I have a BA in Portuguese and English Language and Literature from University of São Paulo/Brazil. I’ve worked the Post Office (Cashier, Costumer Service e HR). I’ve also been an English teacher for both kids and adults. And I’ve been an En>PtBr translator for the past 8 years.

I worked with translation until my last pregnancy, but decided to give myself a maternity leave for unlimited time, so that I’d be able to concentrate on the best (and hardest) job ever: motherhood! My kids won’t be little and won’t depend on me forever! I praise God for He’s been giving us enough to live so that I don’t need to earn a salary, so now I’m a “full time mom!”

I’m also involved in our church’s ladies’ meeting, I also give support to the Youth Group and lead on the Mothers and Toddlers that happens in out church weekly.

In the little free time, I like to readchat, to crochet, knit and sew.
