I am based in: Lisbon


I was the leader of Association of Environmental Protection for 5 years. During my time at university I volunteered in an institution helping teenage mothers getting back on their feet. One of my passions is getting people connected with project development and networking purposes. I am very enthusiastic about developing and implementing projects, in order to promote new ideas and introducing changes that will empower and increase my own skills, as well as those from others around me.
