Barbassa began her career with the Dallas Observer, where she won a Katie Journalism Award in 1999. She joined the Associated Press in 2003, and after two more awards from the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and the APME, she returned to Brazil in 2010 as the AP’s Rio de Janeiro correspondent.  She will speak on the subject of her first and critically acclaimed book: Rio de Janeiro’s changing socioeconomic culture and the challenges it faces as it prepares for the coming Olympic Games.
