No, I am still learning to speak English, but I am going to record a voice message in English for when I can't answer calls to practice my speaking skills.

I did not try to leave a voicemail either in English or in my mother language, because in my country we did not use voicemail a lot, I can say I never have seen anybody using voicemail :)

Marina Silva must be Brazilian just like me. This is a very common name in here. Also her accent is very familiar.
