Blog it Forward – Camila Zilles

Hello everyone! πŸ™‚

I was blogged by my colleagues Caetano Almeida (Blog It Forward – Caetano Almeida) and Natalia Machado (Blog It Forward – Natalia Machado) and I’m here today to accept this challenge and create my own BIF blog, talking a little bit about myself. You can find more information about this challenge in Blog It Forward Community Challenge and add your name into the Blog It Forward (BIF) Chain if you want to join it.


My name is Camila Blume Zilles and I’m 22 years old. My middle name, Blume, is from my mother’s family, and my last name, Zilles, is from my father’s family.

Both my middle and last name’s are German, and the cool thing is that my middle name “Blume” means Flower in German, however my last name “Zilles” does not have an actual meaning. πŸ˜›

I live in a city called São Leopoldo, which is located in the south of Brazil, and I study Environmental Engineering at the local University, Unisinos.

I’m also taking German classes at Unisinos together with Natalia, who invited me to this challenge.

I started working at SAP Labs Latin America in March of 2012 as a Rotation Intern, and during my internship I was able to work in three different areas: CoE (Center of Expertise), SAC (Support Advisory Center) and PS (Product Support).

I have been working as full time employee since November of 2013, and I’m currently working with the component EHS – Environment, Health and Safety.

I enjoy very much listening to music, watching movies, traveling and reading books. I really like to sing and I also love eating pizza! 😘

Last year, I traveled to Europe for the first time! It was definitely a great experience and a dream coming true.

The cities that I liked the most to visit were Paris and London, as you can see in the pictures below:

This is me in London!


Fun fact about my country

I have already mentioned that I live in a city called São Leopoldo, which is located in the state named Rio Grande do Sul. Many people do not know much about this state, so I would like to tell you a little bit more about it:

Rio Grande do Sul is located in the south of Brazil. A big part of its population is of European descents, which was the result of the immigration in the region.

Besides that, the state is famous for its weather, which is the coldest in the country, and also for its natural beauty. The landscapes are lovely and you can also find beautiful waterfalls and fields. You can see some of them in the pictures below:

São Miguel of Missões


Gramado City


Caracol Waterfall


Fun fact about me

A fun fact about me is that I like arts very much!

When I was about 15 years old I started to take painting classes, and I was actually very good at painting.

Unfortunately right now I don’t have much time to continue with my painting classes; however I was able to paint enough pictures to decorate my house! πŸ™‚

You can check some of my paintings in the picture below. The paintings were made using oil paint.


Fun Questions asked by Caetano and Natalia:

– If you were 20 again, what would you study?

I’m 22 and I like very much studying Environmental Engineering. πŸ˜€

– What do you enjoy most in your work and why?

I like the fact that I learn new things everyday, and I also enjoy the work environment very much.

– What is your favorite musician/band?

Maroon 5.

– What is your favorite quote?

“Enjoy Every Moment”.

– What would you do if you won one million dollars?

I would travel the world. (who wouldn’t? πŸ™‚ )

– What is your favorite book? Why?

My favorite book is “The Book Thief”. I love the story and I find it very emotional.

Blogging it Forward

I’d like to blog it forward to the following people:

Willian Moller

Rodrigo Pessin

Nuane Mazzarino

Denise Blume

Ricardo Dias

Please answer these three questions:

If you could choose another city to live, what city would you choose?

– What do you enjoy most in your work and why?

– What is your favorite book? Why?
