ABOUT ME

Hi, I am journalist that now works as public policy specialist about telecommunications and internet law. I aim to help my country to spread Internet broadband to every citizen. I am a very flexible person, curious and friendly as journalists use to be. I love arts, music and cinema and I love traveling as well, as a way to share knowledge and experiences and improve tolerance and respect among people. I believe in the power of kindness. I used to live in London for my master in Communications Policy and my final work is about the universal Internet access.

PHILOSOPHY

We are what we think. Every arises from our thoughts.
"Success is not the key to happiness, happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful."

Music, Movies, and Books

Cult, french, popular, philosophy, those that make me cry and think.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I like generosity and I think it is the most beautiful expression of human being. I like meditation and Buddha teachings such as love kindness. I like social mobilization as a powerful way to transform society throught more equal social distribution and I took part of many protests in Brazilia against the traffic violence. I like social work and I plan to be engaged in a moviment to give books for children in need that doesn't have access to culture and adequate education. I think a literated society is a able to be a happier society.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am from Brazil and I live in Brasilia and I did my masters in London and I would like to carry on improving the language. I have a special interest in learning about Archaeology and ancient culture and art and the history of our ancestors in Egypt and even before.
