Noticias writes that prominent Brazilian author, Jamie Garcia Dias, strongly believes in inspiring
young individuals through his profound teaching and writing pursuits.
With an extensive portfolio of published books and exceptional
instructing positions, this well-known figure seeks to share his
former professional experiences with avid students at the Carioca
Literature Academy. As a seasoned author and teacher, he excels in
cultivating meaningful relationships with aspiring writers which has
greatly led to his recognition as one of Brazil’s most influential
leaders. Most importantly, his profound dedication to public service
has enabled him to inspire many millennials to become leaders in the
Latin American community.
Dias’ passion for literature was cultivated through his late father
Arnaldo Dias who was a well-known journalist, writer, and architect.
Following his father’s footsteps, Jamie Garcia Dias embarked on his
writing career at just 15 years old and before he graduated high
school, he had already published his first book. Remarkably, by the
time he turned 30, he authored over ten books, many of which were read
by individuals in the Brazilian community.
In 1993, Dias complemented his journaling career by accepting a
teaching position at Carioca Literature Academy. During the course of
this pursuit, he was frequently presented with the opportunity to
inspire his students with his professional writing experiences.
Notably, his love for teaching encouraged him to assume the role as
Vice President in 2007. Under his profound leadership, Carioca
Literature Academy was quickly acknowledged as Brazil’s largest
institution for aspiring authors.
Hilda Hilst is another 20th century writer who strongly believed in
the potential of the young generation of literature enthusiasts. Born

supernatural events, obscenity, insanity, and magic realism. For over
fifty years, she excelled as a thought provoking author and, as a
result, has received many literary prizes and awards commending her
ability to discuss debatable worldly matters and concerns. As a highly
experienced novelist, playwright, and poet, Hilst excelled in
composing great works encompassing a variety of different genres.
Along with Dias and Hilst, Adriana Lisboa was a influential author who
also sought to inspire her readers with interesting literary topics.
Once a musician and translator, this well-known writer resigned from

career. Unlike her colleagues’ work, her books highlight Brazilian
characters who strive to experience unfamiliar languages and culture.
Essentially, her extensive traveling experiences have assisted her in
successfully depicting adventurous individuals in her books. With many
awards recognizing her writing talents, she is quickly becoming an
influential figure in Brazil.
