About Me


Getting to know the best places in RIO city and making friends there!


I am an anthropologist and also work at an NGO called "Relaf" /Red Latinoamericana de Acogimiento Familiar- For the Right of Children to live in a family and a community(www.relaf.org)/ as a junior researcher and a translator-

I know it's hard to describe a person through a few lines, but if you meet me you'll see that I'm a very social and outgoing person. I love being with my friends, chatting and sharing moments with them more that anything. I also like getting to know new cultures and lifestyles and trying new activities.

Now that I'm about to get degree, my objective is to get a work where I can improve the life of those who need it the most in my country, specially children's lives.
