Angola was my country of birth and the land chosen as home by my grandparents over 70 years ago. The civil war brought us back to Portugal were I was raised by my FUNtastic family with a strong sense of belonging.
While exploring and being inspired by nature and outdoor sports, I grew up to believe that life is an amazing adventure that we can embrace in all its dimensions.
Connecting at risk children to adults that really matter, was the pathway that helped me understand how important it is to be hard wired to the world through resilient connections. I took the helm of Pressley Ridge in Portugal and over the past 20 years, I’ve been dedicating my life helping people finding the best version of themselves. By doing so, the world can only be a better place. And this is the legacy I believe our children need to flourish and thrive.
