Felipe Neves takes nothing for granted. Growing up in Brazil, his mother worked tirelessly to provide Felipe with a private education. After graduating from law school in Brazil and working at a law firm for several years, Felipe developed a burning desire to share what he learned about his country’s government and political infrastructure with young Brazilian public school students. This would become Felipe’s modus operandi; learn, grow, share.
Felipe is currently the Head of Google Workspace for Education in Latin America — his achievements and accolades speak for themselves, but he humbly measures his success by the happiness and impact he brings to those around him.
In this storymark spotlight episode, Felipe recounts his participation in a U.S. State Department program which led him to Stanford University. These experiences allowed him to pursue a law degree and lean into his entrepreneurial ambitions.
