About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Looking for an opportunity to improve my language skills!

ABOUT ME

I'm a 33 year old girl, passionate about my home town - Lisbon - and traveling the world, getting to know other cultures and people! I'm a Budhist, I practice Yoga, I love sports (volleyball, running, biking, swimming, trecking. I sing, and I'm learning to play the guitar and the piano. I'm a music addict! Love going to concerts! I'm interested in Art in general, specially photography, cinema and dance.

PHILOSOPHY

I practice Nichiren Daishonin's Budhism - "The course of our lives is determined by how we react - what we decide and what we do - at the darkest of times. The nature of that response determines a person's true worth and greatness" - Daisaku Ikeda. I believe in self reliance and responsibility, and that everyone of us is unique and has an irreplaceable mission! Life is what we make of it!
