Catarina Gomes
Global Digital Campaigner & Strategist
My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Lisbon
THNK connection: THNKer , LIS Class 3

 

Working as a global digital campaigner, I build campaigns around the world, having worked in India, Egypt, Kenya, Uganda, Mexico, and China. My current challenge is to engage local youth populations around sexual rights and health issues in regions where sexuality is taboo.

 

I am motivated by the possibilities that arise from releasing the latent positive power youth and other marginalized communities hold within themselves, amplifying their voices with innovative tech and media tools. Realizing that it takes leadership skills to motivate and encourage people to perform at their best, I started focusing on growing my own leadership skills; building on my already formed strategic thinking and communication skills.
