Brazilian skirt girl to join carnival

Student Geisy Arruda poses at her home in Sao Paulo wearing the same dress that she was expelled for wearing on campus

Brazilians may be seeing a whole lot more of the student whose short pink dress got her booted from college.

Geisy Arruda , who became an instant celebrity after being heckled by hundreds of fellow students because of her dress, has accepted invitations to participate in the nation's flesh-baring Carnival parades.

“It will be a dream come true for me,” Arruda said just before giving a deposition to police who are probing whether any crimes were committed when a crowd of students harassed her at the University Bandeirante.
