Maylan Studart is a 19-year-old from Rio de Janeiro who recently moved to the U.S. to ride horses at New York’s Aqueduct racetrack. And in a twist of fate no one could have imagined, a 19-year-old Brazilian woman also happens to be attractive.
Her blog, which includes pictures of her on the beach, in Halloween costume, and with her husband (sad trombone), features the vision that made her dream of riding in America possible:
You see, the key is to aim high. If you set low goals, you may achieve them, yes. And maybe sooner than you would achieve a very high goal. But if you aim high and try with your heart, with your soul, with your mind, like a horse who wears blinkers (“antolhos” em português), even if you don’t reach your highest goal, you will still get so much furthur than you would if you aimed low.
I dunno. That’s great that you’ve won five of your first 15 races in America and all (including a 51-1 longshot), but that sounds like an awful lot of work. I’d rather set goals like, “I have to finish this jar of peanut butter by the time I finish watching The O.C. Season Two on DVD.” And I’ll accomplish that goal. Even if it means not going outside or showering all weekend.
