Bernardo Manzolillo

Hey! My name is Bernardo, you can also call me Bernie, and I go by he/him pronouns. I’m originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In 2018 I moved to Manhattan, where I attended an arts high school, before coming to Purchase. In my time here I’ve met people from all over the U.S. and the world. This campus is a place for the exchange of art and ideas. Aside from my job as your IOL you can also find me at the Stood as the General Programming Coordinator. A few hobbies of mine include cooking, writing and collecting mugs. I look forward to meeting you all!
