Hey, i'm Joana, i'm a Medical Doctor, specializing in Public Health.
I love to travel and meet new people. In the cities i visit i usually fall in love with the architecture, people and atmosphere. I've travelled a lot during the last years and i'm greatfull for that. I'm a curious girl too, always wanting to learn new things.
I'm from a little town called Tomar, but i moved to Covilhã (next to our biggest continental mountain) in order to study medicine. I did interships in clinical area in Pilsen (CZ), Malta, and Natal (Brazil).
I've just moved this year to Sines with my boyfriend, in order to take the 4-years specialization in Public Health.
