Brazil Leadership Program
Working with social development initiatives has been my passion for the past 10 years. I'm currently serving as Executive Director at Somos Um, an organization focussed on promoting the impact business ecosystem in the state of Ceara, Brasil.
For ten years I worked as a professional photographer and cultural producer, living in France and Germany, where I studied photography and visual anthropology respectively. As I moved back to Brazil, I decided to migrate into the social sector, and after collaborating with small local projects, I founded an NGO with my family to work with education through music and martial arts for underprivileged kids. After serving as executive director for 6 years, I now contribute as a managing board member.
Since then, I have served in philanthropy boards such as GIFE and have volunteered in different projects such as União BR. I have also spoken on education as a tool for change, philanthropy and impact business at UNIFOR, NEXUS Latam and Congresso GIFE, as well as local events and organizations.
