About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To be innovative and excellent to make social change and inspire people around me.

ABOUT ME

I've been moving to different cities in Brazil since I was born. First I lived in a dutch colony in Sao Paulo called Holambra, after 7 years we moved up to Minas Gerais as my dad had a farm there. After 2 years things were not that good, we got back to the south of the country, Paraná, the place my family lives today after more than 10 years. During this time in Parana, I had the chance to go on Exchange to Malaysia thru Rotary. I spent a year there. Learned a lot about myself and diverse cultures around the world. After that I went to Sao Paulo to study Communications at ESPM. In my second year of graduation I joined AIESEC, the largest student-run organisation in the world, that works for the development of leadership thru international internships. After 2 years of dedication, being President of AIESEC in my university I went to Bangladesh for a traineeship at Grameen Bank, the microcredit bank founded by the Nobel-Peace-prizer winner M. Yunus. After that I got graduated, started to work with human/consumer behavior at Ipsos and after 1 year was selected for a traineeship abroad at Kraft Foods in Zurich/Switzerland in the area of Consumer Insights (2012-2013)
